My Students

My fourth grade students come from a high poverty and low income area. Although many come to school with hardships of low socioeconomic status, they are eager to strive in their learning.

In my classroom, we focus on being safe to make mistakes during learning, having integrity when interacting with others, and having a positive learning experience.

My students are enthusiastic and a full of life group who are willing and excited to learn new information and share their knowledge. The enthusiasm shown in learning is evident through cooperative learning projects which vary between teacher and student developed topics.

Because fourth graders enjoy the chance to move, our classroom allows for students to do just that. To get the wiggles out, students can use a small trampoline throughout instruction or use an exercise band, stress ball, or back scratcher when taking a time out. This allows them to feel safe while thinking about how to correct their behavior in the classroom.

My Project

The students will be able to access books they are interested in; which will allow them to increase their reading ability. The graphic novels, easy readers like Katie Woo, non-fiction text on topics about Princess Diana and other individuals in history, along with Dogman and Diary of a Wimpy Kid will encourage students to find books they are interested in.

The students will enjoy reading books that are geared toward their interest level.

Every classroom deserves to have a classroom library full of rich reading materials of various genres and abilities. These materials will be accessed daily through various independent reading opportunities.
