My Students

My students are so passionate about learning! They believe in working hard, making mistakes, and growing! We are in year two of Leader in Me. I want to get materials that help students learn that making mistakes is part of the learning process. We can help one another become leaders and learn for each other too.

We have daily Morning Meetings where we greet one another, answer a question of the day, and reflect on our choices from the day before.

We set a goal for the new day ahead. My students love sharing their thoughts and ideas and support one another on a daily basis. They are an amazing group!

My Project

I would have more books and materials to share with my class and my second grade team members. The books I have requested by Julia Cook are awesome resources for read alouds. They all have important messages and great discussions take place when students are exposed to the stories. I have a few in my classroom that I currently own and they have been amazing! I have chosen What If everyone Said That, Ricky Sticky Fingers, and Sorry, I Forgot to Ask as some books for leadership and Growth Mindset. I have chosen My Dirty Dog and I Want a Dog as resources for our Lucy Calkins writing program. They would all be terrific resources for my classroom.
