We are a family of 23 spunky third grade learners. Students walk into class everyday ready to grow, lead and challenge one another.
Our classroom is made up of all types of learners, with all different needs, coming from all different backgrounds.
But, for 7 hours a day, we come together as one family, hoping to push one another towards one goal: to LEARN!
My 3rd graders walk into class everyday wanting more: more knowledge, more independence, more responsibility. Everyday we work on being better than the day before.
I have never met a more generous and determined group of students. Their desire to learn and grow is equal to their desire to see their peer succeed. They quickly come alongside one another to ensure ALL students learn.
Our school is a large elementary school located in an agricultural community, striving to serve ALL students.
The resources in our school are targeted to teach only one type of student. My hope is that I can teach my students with materials targeted towards each student, encompassing their background, race, and gender, so that it is more easy to relate to.
This year we have had the experience of studying two different novels as a class, but the characters in the book do NOT reflect the students in my class.
When students are able to "see themselves" in the text it is easier for them to make connections and develop aspirations based on what they have read. My hope is to get a class set of the novel "Return to Sender," in hopes that the novel would connect to the majority of my class. If we were able to study this novel it would provide a deeper understanding into others cultures and experiences.
