My Students

I teach 22 fourth graders who are eager to learn. My classroom is not just a place to learn; it is also a place where my students discover that they are able to change the world through the choices and decisions they make in their lives.

The majority of students at my school receive free or reduced-price lunch, meaning they qualify for at least part, if not all, of the cost of their meals to be paid for by the district due to low parent income at home.

Many of my students come from low-income​ homes and this can negatively impact their ability to learn successfully.

I teach students at all levels - from above level, to on level, to below level. However, they all come to school wanting to learn with positive attitudes about school, no matter what is going on in their lives. They are hard workers who want to do good things with their lives and they know it starts here in the classroom.

My Project

Fourth grade is a tough year when looking at the ELA standards. The expectations are tougher, and concepts become much more difficult. How great would it be to be able to review a concept, self-check your work, and move on to the next lesson? This kit allows my students to do just that.

What better way to review reading lessons than to practice with a partner using hands-on materials?

Sometimes, we need someone to work with to help us understand the strategies and skills we are learning. This kit allows my students to work in pairs to review the content independently, while I work with a small group. This kit contains an entire year worth of content for the students who struggle to practice previous content, the students who mostly get it to review it one more time, and the advanced students to start working ahead on the curriculum. We need this kit to meet the needs of every student in our classroom in a fun and engaging way. Keeping students engaged in their learning when working in pairs is a necessity so that they get the most out of their learning time, and this kit helps to make that happen.
