My students are mixed general education and special education students who are excited about their upcoming seventh grade school year. They are 75% reduced-price lunch students who come from various types of backgrounds and cultures, but who are all "my kids" during the school year.
My students demonstrate the ability to persevere throughout the school year as we read engaging texts dealing with daily struggles for the main characters.
These texts allow my students to connect to the character and see how their daily lives are not as difficult as they may appear.
Daily, our classroom temperature is regulated by the weather and how much heat can get up to our classroom. Sometimes, students climb the five floors of stairs after gym, and are begging to have some cold air come in. Opening the windows just doesn't cut it. In addition, come the spring and summer months, our classroom on the top floor will be a sauna.
Preparation is the key to success, especially since the state tests will be during those very hot and humid months.
Having students who are not sweltering or freezing will aid students in their success.
