Our school believes that literacy is the heart of education. It is so fundamental to learning that its importance in our school cannot be overstated.
My class consists of 24 amazing students.
They are energetic, unique, happy 2nd graders. They come into my classroom with different characteristics, skills and life experiences. These differences help us to build a cohesive and collaborative classroom community. They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have learners that are excited and ready to learn!
Quality books, engaging lessons and fun hands on activities makes learning and coming to school fun and enjoyable.
Tell me and I forget, teach me and I remember, involve me and I learn -Benjamin Franklin.
The social emotional books I am requesting will involve my students in breathing and self regulation activities. They will give my students a treasure chest of strategies they can pull from when they become unregulated.
The hats and decorations will be used during my classroom transformations. These classroom transformations alter my classroom environment in order to increase student engagement and enrich my students learning with rigorous content. They are the lesson that stick in the minds of my students for a life time.
The magnetic tiles will be used during morning tubs. They will learn social skills that are so important in the work place.
