My Students

I have the pleasure of teaching across the grades all students who are struggling with their reading and math comprehension. My students are eager to learn, but perhaps need a different way to learn. I try to make our lessons stress-free, but when a child knows they are having difficulty learning, it sometimes proves to be impossible.

This is where learning while laughing would be beneficial.

We need to bring back laughter to our schools! Children need to understand that it is possible to giggle and learn.

My Project

Organization is the key to success! Truer words have never been spoken. If you are not organized, you are in a constant state of flux.

My students are all eager learners who are having difficulty reading and comprehending the written word.

I have noticed that their work is simply not organized. It is a heartache to ask a child to locate work in their desk.

The answer seems so obvious. There needs to be a system of organization in place. This is why the write and wipe folders are ideal. I travel around the room constantly and never seem to have a place to store student work. The room is small and overcrowded, and storage is an issue. However, a wipe and write folder that can be placed on the side of a file cabinet will not be in the way. Plus, I can see the work inside and write notes on the outside for my students. Rotating caddies just make good sense. When pencils, crayons and all those things that roll on the floor have a place to be stored, we can all have a sense of peace in our classroom.

What a wonder it would prove to be to be organized.

No longer will I have to search for a student's work; more importantly, the student will no longer search either. Everything will be at our fingertips. Thank you for your consideration.
