My Students

My students are 6th graders attending an urban intermediate school. My students are on different learning levels grouped into a homogeneous setting. I have several students who are English Language Learners and others who receive special education services. Most receive free or reduced-price lunch.

My students come from wonderfully diverse backgrounds and bring different experiences to our classroom.

A diverse group of students means diverse learning styles and the need for differentiation of instruction. They respond well to varied teaching approaches that make learning fun and relatable.

My Project

My students respond well to small-group work, and this kidney table will help facilitate that time. This table will be the place to go for students in need of extra support, some quieter time, and for enrichment activities. It will allow me to better monitor each child in the group to ensure they are comprehending the material. The dry-erase dots, markers, and erasers will be used on the table so the students can write out their math problems. Work seems so much more fun for them with dry erase dots and markers than it does with paper and pencils! This table will fit so much better in the space I have and will allow me to keep my eyes on the whole class while directly helping a small group in front of me.
