My Students

Our days at Tennessee Ridge Elementary school are very active and productive. I have two classes of Language Arts/Reading students. During this time, students are reading to learn in different content areas and working cooperatively with other students.

My students are citizens of a small county (population 8,300), where life moves slowly.

Children participate in 4H, live for the county fair, ride four-wheelers, swim in the creek during the summer and love to learn. They come from remarkable families that will do anything to help each other out. This giving nature is growing in my students. They are bright, eager-to-please and excited about their future. They feel that nothing is out of their reach! Our students come from many different economic levels. The largest portion is low income and relies on public assistance and community churches.

My Project

My students will use this table as a gathering place for small groups during reading time. It will also allow us a comfortable space to meet for differentiated instruction. We often need extra work space to meet the needs of our special education assistants working with students with disabilities.

We can't wait for our new reading table.

We have a reading corner already set up for it's arrival. We have been grouping our student desks together for reading instruction but that makes it difficult in the classroom at other times. This will allow our students to have a more permanent placement in the classroom and a dedicated reading instruction area.
