My Students

Our school strives to find the leader in all students. Every child has capabilities, talents, and strengths. Sometimes all it takes is exposure or motivation. The students in my class strive for excellence. They all inherently care about one another and continually make an effort to improve in all aspects.

My class consists of 20 amazing students.

Of those 20, four are English learners, one receives resource services, and three are in speech. They are all have a think win-win attitude and do their personal best to contribute to our classroom community.

My Project

The Smarter Balance Assessment Consortium state test can be pretty intimidating for ALL students. The requested self-checking language practice cards, solve and check math cards, and 5-minute vocabulary cards will help my students feel more confident in their knowledge of third grade standards. The self-checking cards will be integrated into workshop time where students can practice multiple skills. The materials in this request include multiple skills such as math standards, vocabulary, and reading. The cards can be used independently and/or in groups. I need the requested materials for students to independently access their knowledge. They can then look for assistance from their peers or myself to achieve mastery. The self-checking language cards will be used for students to practice their grammar and language skills. The fraction cards will help students practice the many standards revolved around fractions. The solve and flip math cards will help the students spiral and review all math standards. Finally, the 5-minute vocabulary cards will prepare students to interact with new vocabulary as well as prepare them to apply context clues on the state test.

We NEED these requested materials to increase confidence and awareness in mastering third grade standards.

Thereafter, students can take that big state test with self-assurance and a smile! Who doesn't want to smile when taking a test?
