My Students

I have a classroom of thirty bright, hard-working, students in a suburban community. It is difficult to close the learning gap when you are lacking specific materials to not only engage students, but to also work towards furthering their growth.

Everyday these students make me want to get up and come to work!

Their enthusiasm for learning is contagious!

The makeup of my classroom also includes students with learning disabilities that are mainstreamed into my general education classroom.Our school has about a 65% free and reduced lunch population. We are also considered a Title I school in all subject areas.

My Project

In our classroom every morning, all morning long, you will see kids reading, reading, reading! We practice reading many different ways to make it fun, engaging, and lasting!

Flashlight Fridays are a hit in second grade!

Students love to read with the lights out, snuggled up with a favorite book. Our listening station is a favorite as well, and the equipment is very loved-headphones especially! Of all the materials we use they are the ones that wear out first. Students also love to do word work activities as well, and an organizer is definitely needed to make these activities more organized and accessible.
