My Students

I have a classroom of 20 students in Rural Illinois. We are a county-wide school and still only have approximately 400 students Kindergarten through 5th Grade. We are identified as having a high level of low-income students.

I strive to build a strong sense of community in our room each year and I am blessed to have a great group of kids coming into 3rd grade this Fall!

The positive energy that our teachers and students bring to school each day is rejuvenating and these kids deserve the best!

My Project

The products that I have selected will aide in assessing where each child is achieving and move them forward as needed. Each student can work at their own pace and it is a hands-on workbook that can be taken home for extra help too! We have a very rigorous Math curriculum. However, I feel that it lacks some of the basic skills needed to achieve mastery of what is expected in third grade. These workbooks would be a great supplement to what we currently teach and they could be used as an assessment tool to see what each student needs to work on.
