My Students

My second graders are the best students in school! I tell them that every day. I have a diverse group of students from different social and economic backgrounds, but they are friends, and we LOVE to learn and get along together.

My students enjoy working together in groups, discovering math with a partner, working as a team to earn class rewards, and they cheer each other on with successes and progress.

We are bucket fillers, and we work hard to be positive and happy.

Since I am a first-year teacher in second grade, our classroom is limited on supplies that can assist with math and technology. My students would benefit greatly with supplies that could help me differentiate and create group learning.

My Project

One of the focuses in our school district is differentiation of learning, and one of our core curriculum standards in second grade is working with time.

I have ordered individual clocks so my students can have a hands-on learning experience as we learn about, practice and review time.

The magnetic tiles, books, and visuals will be used for small group learning, review with room volunteers, and assistance with instructional aides. They also will be used for centers and differentiated learning, as well as whole class instruction.

These materials will give an added scope to learning math skills and and practicing and reviewing the standards and objectives required by the school district in which I teach. These educational resources will be used on a daily basis and will enhance learning, differentiation, and will be a great asset to our classroom.

Since this is my first year in teaching second grade, my supplies are limited. Thanks for assisting our class.
