My Students

My students are some of the hardest working children you could ever hope to meet. They are 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students with some behavioral challenges. The focus for my students is developing age appropriate social skills, coping, and communication skills, and academics. The goal of the program is the successful return to the general education classroom to the greatest extent possible.

My students come from low income areas and often have little resources at home.

I try to do everything I can to make learning memorable.

My Project

The behavior basics book club I have already purchased from teachers pay teachers was created to help teach students the basics of behavior through childhood classic books. The behavior basics book club can be set up in my classroom and utilized as a valuable resource to teach students various behaviors and how to be successful in the classroom. My display of behavior basics book club books in my classroom would allow me to grab it in a second when a refresher lesson is needed on any given day!

I have chosen childhood favorites to align with each lesson in my behavior basics curriculum.

These books provide a fun alternative to direct instruction to teach the basics of behavior. These books provide critical thinking and hands-on activities for extension activities in our classroom!
