My Students

I teach in a Title I school. All of the students receive free breakfast and lunch. The students in my classroom love school. They are excited to come to school each day and are eager to learn new concepts

My students eat breakfast and snacks in the classroom.

This provides us with the opportunity build a stronger relationship. We have the chance to talk about the day's events and discuss any concerns that arise. I get to see their social interactions with each other.

It is necessary to keep our classroom clean. Each day, students have jobs that include sweeping and wiping off the desks with Clorox wipes. They also clean the white boards that are used on a daily basis. During the day, third graders complete assignments on the computers. Computer screens need to be cleaned regularly. This routine helps to create a healthy classroom. I want my students to have prefect attendance. Using wipes and disinfectant spray will help reduce the spread of viruses. As a result, sicknesses will decrease and my students will be at school each day.

My Project

Each day my students eat their breakfast and afternoon snack in the classroom. This is an opportunity for me to develop stronger relationships with all of the boys and girls in my room.

In order to provide a cleaner, healthy classroom, a routine of disinfecting desks, whiteboards, and computers is necessary.

The use of whiteboards is almost a daily activity in my classroom, especially in math. Students complete work using whiteboards for guided practice and to record modeled strategies. The whiteboards allow me to see exactly what they are doing, as well as provide an easy place for them to show and share their work. Third grade students utilize laptops daily to develop and practice skills. By the end of the week, the board and computers screens are extremely dirty. The cleansing wipes will be used to deep clean them each week. Disinfecting spray will help cut down on viruses and germs that cause sickness.
