I teach a wonderful group of fourth graders who love hands-on learning! We are a Title I Priority School in an urban community. The students in our school are considered economically disadvantaged and all students receive free breakfast and lunch. Despite the many obstacles my young children face they are all committed to learning more every day. Many of the children have been in classes together since kindergarten, creating many interesting, sibling-like relationships. They both support and challenge each other every day.
My students come to school with the goal of learning more every day.
They love solving new problems during math. These children listen intently during read-aloud and participate enthusiastically during shared reading time. his excitement for learning is a love I hope to ingrain in my students so they become life-long learners.
At the end of the 2018-19 school year I got binders funded to help keep my students organized. It turns out I will have a larger class than originally expected so I need more binders so that all of my students can have one. By helping my students stay organized it will make turning in work and keeping their desks clean easier.
By teaching my class how to organize their school work in a binder, they will be able to carry this skill to future grades.
After I teach students how to use their binder they will be more acccountable for completing and turning in their work since they'll know exactly where it is. My goal is for students to spend more time on learning and less time trying to figure out where their materials are.
