My Students

We are a Title I school with all students either walking or being dropped off in the morning. Breakfast is free for all students, with a snack in the afternoon. Many of my students are also enrolled in a backpack program to take food home with them over the weekend.

My students come in every morning, ready to learn and have fun.

They are so smart and funny. Many of them love to read and do work involving some kind of drawing or coloring. We also do a lot of whole group learning and creating.

Many of my kids come from home lives they cannot control. However, when they come to class, I can give them the love and attention they need to succeed in whatever it is they want to do.

My Project

We will start our next book study with Sideways Story, which the kids will love. In the past, we have had only a few books needed, forcing many students to double up on books or go without. This also makes activities needing the books more difficult.

Having a class set of books will improve the learning and interest of all students.

My students need to have the opportunity to reread and work through each chapter of the book at their own pace without worry of moving too slowly or too quickly. This will also allow me to work with students who are in need, in a smaller group. I know my students will be so grateful to be able to have a book of their own.
