My Students

I love when my 4th and 5th-grade students have multiple opportunities each day to collaborate and work together.‚Äč

All kids look differently when they learn.

I want my classroom to be a safe, fun, and comfortable place for all types of learners. Ideally, each of my students will be able to find a place in our classroom that best suits their unique learning style.

Students learn best when they feel comfortable and enjoy the space they are in!

My Project

A key component of the ELA (English Language Arts) and Math curriculum in my multiage classroom is differentiated small group instruction. All students meet at a table in small groups so I can teach each child at their individualized reading or math level.

This is the most powerful time of our day and needs to be a safe, comfortable, and desirable setting.

I'm lucky enough to have a fabulous table that fits up to six students (plus myself). The current stools we are using are 10 years old, very unstable, and many have a cracked base. My hope is that these new stools will help make my learners less concerned about getting a "good/bad stool" and more focused on learning.
