My Students

Welcome to our second-grade classroom! We are a Title I school with students from a variety of diverse backgrounds. Seventy-four percent of the students in our school are English Language Learners, and eighty percent are considered economically disadvantaged. Despite challenges, our students are loving, outgoing learners that are committed to helping their community and others.

Part of our school mission statement is to "develop students who will make meaningful contributions to the world and become independent, lifelong learners." In our classroom, we are always reaching towards this goal.

This year, our objective is to create a classroom environment that will prepare our students to become lifelong learners.

My Project

This year my 2nd-grade students have been paired up with a kindergarten class in our school. The 2nd graders look forward to reading to their buddies and even make pictures to bring them. The kindergarteners also love when we come into their classroom to read to them. They look up to their buddies and some even think they are their best friends. It is a celebrity sighting whenever they see us in the hallway or cafeteria.

We are using I Spy books as a way to get our buddies involved in a conversation about vocabulary.

The 2nd graders are helping their kindergarten read and find the different items in the picture. After we have spent a few buddy times reading the books, we are going to make I Spy bottles together.
