My Students

This year I am excited to be teaching 4th grade in a rural elementary school in Virginia. I have students from all socioeconomic backgrounds and various family situations. We also have many military families that we welcome in our school.

Many students receive reading support, math intervention, or other supports throughout the year to help them be successful in all academic areas.

I strive to give my 4th graders a safe, creative environment, and provide them with meaningful learning experiences.

My Project

There are days during the year when we have to stay inside for recess due to rain or cold temperatures. My students need new indoor recess items to let their minds be creative. Magnetic tiles and a stencil kit will allow my students to let their creative juices flow, while taking a break from their academics. These items would take away some of the disappointment of having to stay inside.

The growth mindset posters will go perfectly with our chalkboard brights theme and they will add motivating quotes throughout our room.

Furthermore, they will fill bare spaces and provide inspiration to little minds.

The Cricut will help us create fun bulletin boards, student supply labels, and resources for stations throughout the school year. Students can be proud of the customized items that the Cricut created around our room. Having this machine will help engage learners in all content areas.

All items would be great assets to our classroom!
