My Students

Every one of the students in this school learns in a different way, and each of them is profoundly unique. They may be grouped in the same classroom, but they are not the same. Their skin colors are varied, and their backgrounds are as well. Multiple languages are spoken in their homes, and each home has its own struggles. Many of the students in this classroom have difficulty concentrating due to ADHD, Autism, OCD, English language learner, or other special needs, and they need to work hard to compensate.

Students in this school are hard-working, eager-to-learn children, who come from homes where their parents value education but have limited resources to support the process.

They may not have much money, but the parents and community are active in the school and value education. They are a joy and a delight to teach. They have a lot of learning to do, and in this class, we strive for success in the process.

My Project

Learning a subject area does not happen in isolation. Students need to know reading to understand math and science. Financial literacy is vital for survival as an adult. Social studies gives the historical perspective and current events that shape the information. It is my intention to remove as many barriers to learning as possible and to create dialogue in the classroom that will allow the students to expand their comprehension of what they are experiencing.

The intention of this project is to keep all the students in 4th grade engaged in financial literacy and current events so that they have a greater understanding of the world we live in, greater depth of knowledge in the subject areas, and a greater compassion for others so that they are more effective in creating positive change in the world.

TIME for Kids is a weekly news magazine written so that students can understand what is happening in the world in a format that they can understand. Each month there is a special issue dedicated to financial literacy. Students are given examples of ways that their peers are positively causing change and opportunities to promote change themselves. There are vocabulary, lessons, and extension opportunities. By using the relevant stories that students are also hearing from the news media we are able to connect to our classroom lessons and discuss in a way that fosters greater comprehension. Since the magazines will also go home, these informational texts will become a source of parental involvement when the parents are also talking to their children about world events.
