My Students

Even though my class has more than 90% students who qualify for free or reduced lunch; they are hungry to learn and have inquisitive minds!! Students, at my school, are mostly English Language Learners. They are hard workers and are eager to learn.

The class is quite diverse!

We have Hmong, Karen, Latino and African American students. A few of the students are homeless. As a second grade teacher I find that students learn best when they can have hands on learning. We do much of our learning from games, songs and cooperative group activities. I like to incorporate life skills like reading recipes and making food to show how reading and math are in our everyday life activities.

Thank you for considering donating to my classroom!

My Project

It's important to have a nice flow of retrieving materials for each topic. My classroom is very small, for 30 students. So, when it comes to transition time we need to move quickly and efficiently to not waste learning time.

Transition occurs about every 45 minutes.

During transition time there is a song playing to ignite their learning for the next subject. The students learn how to enter and exit around (either to their mailboxes or cubbies) the room while getting their materials. Having chair pockets will help eliminate a few movements if they can store some notebooks, crayons and pencils on their chairs.
