My school is a Title One school, with high poverty (95%+ low income), high mobility, and over 50% English Language Learners. Although these statistics certainly represent a challenge, they do not define my students or my school. When I look at my classroom of second graders, I see motivated, hard-working, compassionate, kind, and diverse children ready to learn. This is how I would define my students, as they are the reason why I come to school every day, ready to provide them with the best educational experience possible.
Did you love reading as a child? Did you have a teacher who read engaging, thought-provoking, and memorable novels to you? One of my *favorite* parts about being a second grade teacher is having the opportunity to share my love of literacy with my students. My professional goal is to have each and every one of my second graders fall in love with reading. I am able to do this by not only modeling my own love of reading and reading aloud beautiful literature, but also setting up routines and high expectations that all students can and will be a successful reader. By the end of the school year, my second grade kiddos have the experience of meeting in book clubs, reading with partners, self-selecting books from our classroom library, and developing a life long love of reading!
This gorgeous rug will be the spot to hold classroom meetings, read alouds, instruction, and small group work.
This rug is a sure fire way to welcome all students to come to carpet and also provides flexible seating for my kiddos to read and write.
