As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
My students are creative, clever and very spontaneous.
They like to move. They love to read and love lots of positive attention.
Many of them are being raised in single-parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical." From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hoping to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.
Our student's are reading at different levels. We had a Literacy Night many years ago. We need to complete a Library since I move grade levels.
Our class will be excited to see a complete library with a shelf.
It's the first time that all my student's are reading but the range it's immense. Some are just starting to read while others are at chapter books. I need to increase more levels for those who are ready to fly high with a book!
Many student's are starting to enjoy and love books. It will be the perfect opportunity to share books with our families. It's important for everyone to read at home.
