My students want to excel! I encourage them to give their personal best each day. When they are faced with a challenge, I encourage them not to give up and to give it their all.
I really value the one on one teaching time that I get to spend with my students.
Our schedule permits us to be able to meet in small groups that consist of 3-4 students and myself. All of my students learn in different ways. As a teacher, it is my job to be familiar with each different learning style and teach them accordingly. Small group/differentiated instruction time is one of our favorite parts of the day!
This large kidney table will benefit my students and myself in so many ways. Each day, we have a specific time slot in our busy schedule for small group instruction. Small group/differentiated instruction is a vital element in student success. I group my students according to either their learning style or academic level, and I meet with them as a small group to work closer together. I am able to give specific feedback and the students feel more comfortable asking questions when they do not understand something.
Each group consists of 3-4 students.
While we are working on a certain skill, the other students are working in our classroom centers. As of right now, our small group meets in student desks that we have to push together to form a group. It is not very comfortable for the students nor myself. We really need a designated quiet spot in our classroom with one nice big table for us to meet at and learn!
