My Students

If you were to walk in my classroom, you wouldn’t see children seated in rows, pencils in hand, diligently answering a worksheet. You would hear children talking to each other about their favorite part of the story or another student giving a compliment to his partner on an idea he/she shared. You would see students collaborating on the possible ideas for the answer to a mathematical problem.

As their teacher, I’m walking around listening, complimenting their achievements, and even helping to sort out any conflicts that may arise.

I believe it is vital that they not only learn academically but socially, as well. These traits will help them become a contributing member of our society.

My Project

Guided Reading is a big and IMPORTANT part of a first grader's day in my classroom. During this time I am able to give individualized instruction to the students on their reading levels. While I'm working with a group of students, the rest of the class will be extending their learning from previous skills taught in workstations that foster reading and writing.

By donating to this project, it will establish organization and routine during this important part of our day.

Both of these organizational components will serve different purposes but achieve the same results, which is student independence. The drawers will hold the supplies needed to participate in that week's workstations. The book bins will serve as a child's personal library of books they have selected on their reading level.
