My Students

My 25 students are capable of amazing things! Though each student comes in with a different background and various experiences, all students are taught the idea of having a growth mindset. Our brain is powerful; and through practice, we can achieve more. We can continue to improve at tasks that are initially difficult for us. This takes hard work and a positive attitude. Each day, I strive to provide choice in their academic endeavors to help with growth.

Offering students creative choices can allow them to unlock their full potential.

When students are able to choose an aspect of assigned classroom tasks (where to work, what to write about, how to develop ideas, etc), they must take ownership of their learning. Students who take ownership of their learning are more likely to retain and apply their newfound knowledge and skills. I believe students are also able to find success when teachers learn their interests and cater instruction to their specific passions.

My Project

Each morning, students come into the classroom ready to discover and learn. I start each day with a 10-20 minute period of exploration called Morning Tubs. Aside from following school rules and procedures, students are given no special directions. They work collaboratively with approximately 5-7 other students to utilize whatever item is in their morning tub.

I am hoping to offer my students things like origami paper, scented markers, stamps, phonics dominos, Cuisenaire rods magnetic tiles, and more to rotate throughout the year.

Offering this time allows students to begin their day with an exciting activity. It allows them to talk with their peers as they manipulate the items in ways of their choosing. Since no directions are provided, students exercise their creativity and decision making skills when planning exactly how to use the provided morning tub item. For many, it is a highlight of their day!
