My Students

I am a first year teacher from Oklahoma, and my students come from various social and economic backgrounds. We began our first week of school with the adventure of virtual learning. Within the first few days I realized that my second graders are kind. They are patient - with me, with each other, and with technology. But most importantly, they are resilient.

My students are eager to learn.

By week two, we were back in our classroom, and it was obvious that they could not wait to be back at school. More specifically, they could not wait to work with their classmates. I ended each virtual meeting, and now each day, with the biggest smile because these 2nd graders radiate positivity.

My Project

Our classroom is in need of an easel. If we are learning virtually or in-person, I will use this easel to make learning visible! As we participate in virtual meetings, I will record student thinking and create anchor charts that students can refer to as they practice their skills at home. When students are in person, this easel will be the center of our classroom. Easels help build community as we learn together and engage in lessons at the carpet. Having an easel will allow my students to easily interact with the content throughout reading, writing, math, and social-emotional learning. This easel will provide storage for several of our STEM items, and it ultimately creates a space to document student thinking, growth, and discovery.
