My Students

My students are fifth grade students in Milton, MA. These children are interested in learning, inquisitive, funny, creative and hard workers. During the ELA block, we are lucky enough to have two teachers in the class. Throughout the whole day, each and every student is held to high expectations.

Fifth graders are expected to do a lot of problem solving.

They are expected to problem solve in all subjects. They are also expected to take newly taught information and apply it to their work, whether as a group, in small groups or independently.

My Project

26 fifth graders and their teachers need help starting literacy centers. We want to take advantage of having two teachers in the classroom during ELA by implementing literacy centers. After direct instruction, the students will practice the newly taught skills independently and with small groups.

My students are in need of materials to help the 'lift off' of our new literacy centers!

We could use some flexible seating options to help the students stay focused during the independent and small group work. Studies show that theses seating options help students' posture and allows students to discreetly take movement breaks in order for them to focus better.

Most classrooms already have a rug, but we actually don't! We did our research and found a reasonably priced, good-sized rug. We feel that this will help to make our classroom comfortable during whole class instruction and the listening center. It will help to make the classroom feel more welcoming. We can also use some color-coded resources so that each group knows where to get their materials. This will cut down on time spent wandering for work, and the students will know exactly where to get their next project. Having these materials will help students become more independent and get ready for practicing their newly acquired reading skills.
