My Students

My students are special because we have a diverse group of kids that go to school here. Our school demographics have really changed in the last 10 years. Many more of our students come from economically disadvantaged homes as well as non-US natives.

We have had many new students arrive here from Nepal in the past few years.

This has allowed the American born students a chance to learn about new cultures and traditions. My students are incredibly tolerant and empathetic towards the differences within our classroom.

My second graders are brand new to this building. They are coming from a building that only houses Kinder-1st grade. Not only are they coming to a larger building, but they also switch for their classes as well. They have one teacher for Math/Science and one teacher for ELA/SS.

My Project

These materials will make a huge difference in my students ability to learn. My second students struggle with organization and it leads to issues in the classroom.

This year, my second grade students switch core classes.

They have one teacher for Math and Science and one for ELA and Social Studies. This means, they need to share their desk with a student in another class.

Students are constantly putting their items on the "wrong" side of the desk which creates chaos for the other student. This, in turn, creates wasted time for when we are trying to get started for the day or moving onto the next activity.

These baskets will be given to each student. They will be able to put all of their items into them and keep them organized on their own side of the desk. This will help teach them the importance of organization and give them tools to do just that!
