My students are the loves of my life. Each student comes into our school with such a different story and personality. Each student is drastically different, and those traits make me love each student so much more. Our district is tough, and our students' home lives make me feel fortunate in how I grew up. But each and every day they come in with as much love as they have to give that day. We all make it work and give 110% to give each student the love, support, and happiness they need while continuing to teach them.
In order, to help my students become productive citizens they must be able to correctly handle peer relationships. With many of the students not having the correct tools and skills to handle those relationships, I, as a teacher, need to have those resources available. The resource books I have chosen will give me the tools needed, to successfully help my students learn how to communicate and collaborate with their peers. It is essential for our students to learn the correct steps to take to solve a problem with another person. There are many activities and suggestions given in the resource books that can aid me in successfully teaching my students.
The resources I requested would decrease the number of verbal altercations that happen throughout the day.
On a typical day, I have to pause teaching and deal with 20 to 30 verbal fights. This results in less learning time for my students and more free time which could result in more behavior problems. I would take the information from these resources to help better my classroom management. Plus they would give me activities and lessons to use to help my students communicate with peers.
