My Students

My second-grade classroom is a place of transition and learning. Students will spend this year getting accustomed to new course work and material. As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty district, my students are faced with challenges in and outside the classroom. Despite these challenges, I look to provide them with rigorous, fun coursework that will help them be successful.

My students are silly, exceptional, and creative.

All twenty of my students love to learn and look forward to coming to school each day. Creating lessons that are positive and creative will provide my students with a comfortable environment outside of their home lives.

My Project

These materials will make a huge difference in my students learning. Having laminating sheets allows me to create centers that will last throughout the school year! This gives me the ability to make things that my students really enjoy while also practicing their skills. A schedule chart helps students adjust to their new routines... a new school year can be challenging so I want to make my students comfortable.

Primary journals are crucial to develop my students writing skills as we prepare them for the intermediate grades!

Pencils, markers, and colored pencils are a huge necessity in a second-grade classroom! We use them constantly and are always looking to keep our classroom stock fresh! A brand new calendar will brighten up the classroom and helps students work on their calendar skills.
