My Students

Hello! My class is full of very enthusiastic 2nd graders. They love to learn anything I throw at them, no matter the level of difficulty. At our school, we do literacy centers including three rotations according to their individual learning levels. We set goals and try our best to achieve them. My students work hard to strengthen any areas in which they struggle. I work in a Title I school. The neighborhood that surrounds us is full of loving families. My school is extremely supportive and we are not only a big team but a family.

My Project

Keeping up with the times with Current Events Scholastic News! This will help my students learn what it going on in the world around them. Field trips are not always easy, but with these Scholastic magazines, students can learn current news and keep up to date with the world around them.

There are so many things going on outside of the classroom that can bring my classroom to life on the inside.

My students need to expand their minds by learning about current events. They will be learning social studies through literacy. These magazines are a fun and engaging way for them to learn!
