My Students

We are in the inner-city with about 90% of its students being economically disadvantaged. My first-grade classroom has 22 students; seven students have special needs and two students are English Language Learners. I have taught in this school for 22 years, and I can honestly say we have the best staff and students in the city!

We practice the Responsive Classroom, which is a teaching practice that fosters an appreciation for cultural diversity and social acceptance.

Our environment develops self-esteem, respect, and the power of learning for children and staff. Teachers and children are encouraged to pursue learning’s two most important components: curiosity and exploration. Our school provides a positive climate that builds each student’s self-esteem.

An important component of the Responsive Classroom is Morning Meeting. Every morning, my class comes together on the rug in a circle. We greet each other, a few students share, then we do a fun/academic activity and finally read the News and Announcements.

My Project

My class will be so excited to receive some new math games and puzzles for the students to use during our math intervention block. These games will enable students to work with a partner and reinforce math skills in a fun and engaging way. The Place Value Cards will help students understand place value with two digit numbers. The Match Up games and the Math Puzzles are designed for the students to be able to solve and check their answers on their own. They will be able to practice basic addition and subtraction facts, find equivalent equations, identify number patterns, add three numbers and decompose numbers up to twenty.
