So Much Learning Will Take Place with One Easel

My students need an easel for a variety of reasons, to view morning messages, introduce new vocabulary, and view and make anchor carts. We need books on Growth Mindset and the book How Full Is Your Bucket?

My Students

These 22 students will soon be entering a room where I will strive to create a safe and loving environment for all. Many of these students come for unstable homes and lack the finances needed for school every year. I teach in a Title I school so I strive to create fair and equal opportunity for ALL students to succeed academically. I firmly believe that before these students can succeed academically, they first need to be taken care of emotionally and physically.

These 22 students are MORE than just students to me.

They will soon be part of my family, my everyday life, and a piece of me as this is my FIRST class. Despite the challenges and difficulties these students face when they aren't in my classroom, each and every one of them deserves to be loved, cared for, and valued! Each one of them is special in their own way and they all bring different qualities into the classroom that will make us as ONE.

My Project

An easel is essential for my classroom because it will be used in a variety of ways.

We need the book Growth Mindset.

Students need a positive role model in their life who demonstrates a GROWTH mindset versus a FIXED mindset.

Growth mindset focuses on learning over just looking smart, seeing effort as the key to success, and thriving in the face of a challenge. While fixed mindset focuses on looking smart over learning, seeing effort as a sign of low ability, and avoiding challenges. Growth mindset is going to be a key topic in my class and I am looking forward to introducing this topic to both parents and students.

Lastly, we need the book How Full Is Your Bucket?

"We all carry an invisible bucket. This bucket contains our feelings. When our bucket is full, we feel great; when it’s empty, we feel empty. A bucketfiller is someone who says or does nice things for other people. By doing this, they are filling other people’s buckets and filling their own bucket at the same time. On the other hand, a bucketdipper says or does things to cause other people to feel bad."

This book is something I am really looking forward to introducing. Teaching my students that it is important to pick others up when they are having a bad day or just simply doing something out of generosity.
