My Students

My second graders come to school excited to work and learn together! Our class is socio-economically and ethnically diverse. Throughout the school day we come together for read aloud and to work and teach each other.

My students learn more when they can come together to learn from each other in a whole group setting.

Students in second grade love to talk and help each other learn the many skills that second grade requires. I want to continue to keep our classroom community close-knit and instill the love of learning.

My Project

Numerous times throughout the day, we meet together as a whole group. I love reading aloud to my students! We also work together to learn new strategies in math, reading, and writing. A larger carpet will give us more space and an opportunity to work together using manipulatives for reading and math.

Students can work together and help each other learn, giving everyone an opportunity to be successful!

During whole group instruction, students need their own space to sit, wiggle, and learn without getting in each other's way. They can also turn and talk, and teach each other, gaining confidence each time.
