My Students

What makes my Third graders special is their excitement for growing up. This energy pushes them into trying challenging tasks, overcoming personal challenges, and being a productive community member.

Our school is designated Title I and is high poverty.

We are located in a community with a median age of 59.9 years and a median income less than the state of Oregon. 18.6% of our people live in poverty, compared to 13.2% for the Oregon. For 2017, the estimated median income was $33,821. Oregon had a median income of $56,119 (

The elementary school has around 650 students K-5th grade. There is a high rate of student turnover. Families move here to be closer to aging family or to live on the beautiful coast. Many find it difficult to find sustainable income, housing, and other supports.

In the Fall of 2019, our classroom will have a projected 25 students who are 8-9 years old. Next year, we have a shared assistant for the grade level. We currently have 4 third grade teachers. The classroom is inclusive of various abilities, physical, social/emotional, and academic.

My Project

The materials in this project allow us to complete tasks throughout all of our subjects in school. Students love to be engaged in lessons and classroom activities. They also feel motivated by using materials that have been provided by donors. Students have told me that they feel like people care about them.

The dry erase lapboards will help with math discussions, reading responses, and writing intervention.

The markers will be used to illustrate our writing, color in our artwork, show our thinking in Math and Science. The paper sorter will be used to collect student work and help the class secretary file completed work. The color ink for the printer will be used to print pictures, fliers, task cards, science lessons, and student projects. The color paper will be used for newsletters and other materials that need to catch the eye. The sheet protectors will be used to create portfolios and store important items in binders. The pencils will be used to replace the ones that have magically disappeared or have been used up.

These are just some ways that we can use the basic materials to be more successful in our third grade classroom. Thank you.
