My Students

Our classroom is a Conscious Discipline classroom. We believe in helping each other strive to be a school family every day. My job is to keep the kids safe and it is their job to help keep it that way.

We are an energetic, rural, high poverty kindergarten classroom.

We realize that what we do each day helps us work toward our class mission of getting as ready as possible for first grade. We work toward a goal of self-motivation rather than reward-oriented goals.

My Project

Most of my students come from a low poverty family. Money is scarce and the idea of it is not clear. Through the use of the economic readers, students will learn the value and use of money. The supplies will allow the students to illustrate all that they learned.

I will provide the students with color pencils, to create a book to share with others, the markers will allow them to finalize their creation, and the crayons will be used to add details.

Students will use the pens to write about their new learning. The craft trays and storage center will allow us to create and stay organized. Sharing their creations with others will help them further understand economics.
