My Students

My students come to school every day to learn, explore and be engaged. However, It is very important to expose children to proper learning environments. My upcoming class will have a variety of needs and I want to provide them with all the options I can to make their 2nd-grade year the best it can be! I will be teaching a second-grade class of 20 students. My students will be eager to learn and try new things, but they have many odds stacked against them. Our school is located in an urban area. My students come from a low socioeconomic background. All my students receive free breakfast and lunch. However, we have created a school culture that is nurturing while setting high expectations.

My students need a classroom to learn, belong, feel significant, and have fun!

My Project

The Scholastic Magazine subscriptions help the students learn about news going on around the world and promotes reading. These magazines are used for call group buddy reading and reading on their own. The activities throughout the magazine help the students work with a partner. The students love being able to bring something home once they are done with it. They enjoy the pictures and it helps them connect to the world by making connections. It helps encourage social interaction while promoting their social skills. The map skills help them understand geography and how to use maps. Students like to be able to write in where they are working.
