My Students

My students are lively, energetic learners. Many of them live in the trailer parks and low-income housing projects that surround our school. Our school is a STEM-focused school with a tortoise habitat and garden-to-cafeteria program that serves students fresh fruits and vegetables that come from our own school garden, harvested by students.

Despite many hardships and disadvantages, my students are eager learners who love school.

Many of them live with multiple family members in single-bedroom apartments. Several students take home weekly snack packs to supplement meals on the weekends. They look forward to the consistency and security of the school day, often not knowing what they might face when returning home. Although their home life is often unstable, the smiles and energy they bring to the classroom are infectious.

My Project

The jump ropes, sidewalk chalk and Play-Doh will be used as hands-on, engaging materials to help teach students their sight words. Students will use the Play-doh along with sight word cards to roll out their words and practice spelling them. The sidewalk chalk will get students outside, racing to see who can write their words first on the sidewalks or basketball courts. The jump ropes will be a fun incentive to jump while reading. All of these materials will keep my students engaged and active all while building their reading skills. Learning to be fit, reading and having fun will be our goal with these materials.
