My Students

We are a full inclusion K-8 school. We specialize in the inclusion of students who struggle specifically with social emotional/behavioral issues as well as many other learning disabilities. We love the opportunity to offer a wide variety of academic and cultural experiences. Many of our students come from unstable home environments and we try to provide a safe and stable place for them each day - a place that offers a sanctuary from past experiences and also an environment in which they can learn new concepts that will assist their growth as a member of the community at school, at home, and in their particular neighborhood.

The students in my second grade class are creative, inquisitive and full of energy.

They are excited to come to school everyday to learn and build their relationships with their peers and teachers.

My Project

I am revamping my literacy block to include more student choice using center based learning. Center based learning will expose my students to literacy in a variety of ways and also allow me to differentiate their instruction.

One way that can meet the diverse needs of my students is by providing them with a listening center.

Students at all levels can access the same text or a more difficult text by being able to listen to it. I want to have my students improve their word study skills and one way to do that is to provide my students with a hands on activities that include them using letter tiles to practice their knowledge of sight words at reading centers.
