My Students

If I could describe my classroom in three words it would be collaborative, engaging, and rigorous. Students in my classroom show ownership of their own learning through meaningful task to help them grow into marvelous individuals. My passion for my classroom shows through the engagement achieved in my classroom daily.

Every child deserves the opportunity to learn in a stress free and comfortable environment.

My students are extremely eager to learn and need the opportunity to do so with flexible seating choice.

My Project

My students need headphones to use during iReady centers so that they can learn without distraction. Students go to the iReady center daily for both reading and math! With the use of the headphones my students will be able to focus and engage in their lessons. My students will also benefit from using letters to build words. This is an important part of early literacy. My students will use these letter cubes during centers to practice building and reading words.

These daily necessities can greatly impact my students learning and engagement throughout the school day.

By providing my students with stools to use, they will be able to move them freely throughout the classroom to work where they feel comfortable. I will allow my students to use the stools during centers so they can move closer together and collaborate.

My students also need a mailbox system to sort their assignments to take home in their Tuesday folders. Help me give my students the supplies they need to learn the most!
