My Students

I am so excited to teach my students next year! They are a class of mostly boys, who are smart, funny, inquisitive and ready to learn! I have gotten to know this group of students this year as I serviced some of the other students in the classroom for Special Ed Services. This will be my first year teaching general education. I have taught Special Education for the past four years. These students are so kind and always willing to help my friends that have special needs. My goal is to instill in them a LOVE for reading this next year!

My Project

I want to INSPIRE my kids to love writing! We will be starting an interactive writing center. The file boxes will be used to store all the different types of writing they are to work on with examples. This will be teaching them to work independently. Students will have a tracking sheet and will be responsible for doing all the types of pieces (poetry, newsletter, letter, etc.)

Benjamin Franklin said, "Tell me and I forget, Teach me and I remember, Involve me and I learn." The 10-drawer rolling cart will be used to involve them and help them learn with hands-on math activities.

I believe when students have a hands-on experience, such as building a number with base-10 blocks, using dice to play different addition or multiplication games, it helps them to retain the skill.
