My Students

I teach in an urban school district. We are a Title I school. Students at my school receive free or reduced cost lunch. I have a classroom of 22 third grade students that range in all different ability levels. Our school is a Project Restore school. Each week students take Math tests and are also assessed on Reading skills. Both are cumulative, which means skills can not be forgotten and are always practiced. My students have worked hard weekly to maintain their Math and Reading scores. I use centers to help practice past skills and keep them fresh in their minds. We have incorporated a daily Interactive Read Aloud as well. Our state has just adopted a new set of standards that resemble Common Core standards. We are currently finding new ways to teach the standards so students can master the skills in all subjects.

My Project

Data binders are a great way for students to keep track of their progress each week. Students can write down scores and see gains or losses so they know what to do to master those skills.

Students benefit from data binders because they have a voice in their learning and can understand what they need to do to work towards success.

Students are also able to set weekly or daily goals for themselves to ensure they are moving forward in their learning. Having the tab dividers will help students stay organized and help them find what they are looking for faster. This will give them more time to focus on getting better at certain skills!
