My Students

My students are children who come from a diverse background. I have twenty mixed ability group of students and therefore, materials are needed to keep them engaged and interested in standards to be learned.

The students I have been blessed with this year, while learning for these students require more time and effort they are very anxious zealous learners who need extra TLC both for their academic and social growth.

Therefore, with the appropriate resources, they will have a greater desire to learn and become successful adults. They are my "college bound second graders!" About 50% - 60% of my students are on free or reduced lunch and some don’t have the zeal to do well because of lack of motivation. Resources will help my students to be excited about learning and take them away from the drill and kill of paper and pencil. Learning should be fun and when offered in a fun and engaging way, they will learn the necessary concepts for them to mature into the adult they are designed to be.

My Project

My students this year are always very excited to read their AR books while relaxing in the reading area in the sofa that is currently there.The problem is a rodent was rampant in our room and destroyed it!

Now, there is no comfortable seating in the reading area for the students to sit and enjoy a good book.

I believe the reason they gravitate to this area is due to the fact that they get some relief from the hardness of the chairs they use daily. This area also gives the feelings of relaxing at home in your sofa with a good book. It is always a pleasure to see them make room for each other to partake in this comfy area by squeezing in more classmates than the sofa can hold.
