My Students

I am excited to be moving from fifth grade to sixth grade with my students this year. They are an amazing group of students that I have been lucky enough to teach in second, fifth, and now sixth grade. My school serves students from Kindergarten through eighth grade. We are a Title I school and all our students are eligible to receive free lunches. My students are hardworking and eager to learn. I try to incorporate technology into our class as much as possible since we have some Chromebooks now for students to use.

Technology has really increased student engagement in my room!

Students love it and have been able to use an online reading program while I work with small groups. They also have been using it for writing on Google Docs. They love typing their work and it is a great skill to leave for high school. I love using technology because we don't get much copy paper and I can Google docs to provide feedback to students online.

My Project

Students love to see their work on display and having a printer for students will allow them the opportunity to print their work and hang it up for everyone to read. All students love their work to be on display, but without a printer, it is hard to print all their work at home and bring it in.

Having a printer in the room will allow students to take responsibility for their writing and print their own work once it has been edited.

They can hang their work up or file it in their writing portfolios. Being able to print, also allows students the opportunity to print a copy to share with their families!
