My Students

My students are unique, creative, fun-loving, and active learners. They come to school each day with a smile on their face and ready to learn. They like to get our of their seats to learn and work together. Some of the best learning that happens in our classroom comes from what the students are able to teach each other. They all bring so much of themselves to school every day. Each student fills our classroom with talents, positivity, kindness, and laughter.

It is a goal that every person that walks into our classroom feels welcome and a part of our school family!

We work hard on a daily basis to build trusting relationships with each other so that we can all learn and grow together academically, socially, emotionally, and physically throughout our year together.

We start each day with smiles and excitement and we end each day together with a hug, high-five, or a handshake. I am proud of my school family!

My Project

This group rug will be an inviting and comfortable place for my students to meet together many times throughout our day. In our reading, writing, and math programs, students work in small groups and partnerships. Having a rug with personalized squares will keep our classroom organized and running smoothly as students will be easily able to turn to their partner, or group, that will be sitting in a square near them ready to work.

It is crucial to have a welcoming and comfortable place for students to meet together to help encourage collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity.

This group rug will help students quickly find their own personal space within a large group where they will be able to comfortably collaborate and work with their friends around them. It will also provide them with the comfort of knowing where they can go. Not only will this rug be used for large group instruction, but as students are working throughout the day, it will give them another option for a place to lie on their bellyies and work, a place to play games and build during indoor recess on the cold winter months, and this will help make our classroom feel more like home.

Our classroom has all tile floors and this will help my students be comfortable sitting together to collaborate, help them build their creativity, and be an inviting place to learn and grow together as first graders.
