My Students

Lively, energetic, and kind are three words I would use to describe our young learners. Every day, they do their best to achieve all that they can. Our students desperately want to be actively involved in what they do in the classroom.

Living in a large city can be difficult for many young children.

My young learners live close to the downtown area in our city. They go to a Title I school where all students receive free breakfast and lunch daily. Their basic food needs, except for dinner, are taken care of, but now they need something to sustain their minds.

My Project

As with all classrooms, a place to read is a necessity. This also goes for adiquiate storage of supplies. For this project, my students have decided that we need two folding chairs to add to our Reading Nook and some liter-sized plastic boxes to contain our table supplies.

With my students taking the lead, chairs and storage are important and what they've asked for to help organize our room better.

It is refreshing to see that even though these fifth graders could have chosen anything, they were practical and level headed about our purchases.

The choices of my students give me hope of great progress in our Literacy classroom.
