My Students

I am teaching second grade for the first time and I am absolutely excited about it! I have 23 very active learners. I want to provide them with materials that will help my students succeed academically as well as provide them with a cozy, inviting learning environment.

My students are very excited about being in second grade!

They love to move around. They love to jump, dance, write, read, and draw. They come to school to learn and they already know the importance of receiving a quality education. Their parents are actively involved. We are all looking forward to a phenomenal school year!

My Project

For this project, I chose the Counting to One Hundred rug which is available at Teachers' School Supply. This rug will make a great addition to our classroom. It will teach my second graders to count to one hundred, skip count, add, subtract, and multiply through movement. It will also serve as a place for students to sit comfortably during whole group presentations and during videos/movies.

My students learn best through active participation.

I've put a lot of love into my classroom at my expense. I'm looking to put more love into my classroom because I want my room to be a place that inspires my students to be their very best.
