My Students

I work at a Title I school where over 74% of our students receive free or reduced-price lunches. My students are creative, thoughtful and full of curiosity! They absolutely love hands-on, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to "think outside the box". They come to school each day eager to learn new things and bravely take chances to grow both personally and academically. I am amazed at their tenacity!

Every child in my classroom truly loves learning; however, the approach and setting in which they learn best greatly varies.

Our classroom incorporates a variety of learning methods and alternative, flexible seating choices to assure that each student's needs are being met. They are truly an incredible bunch and I am blessed to be working with each and every one of them.

My Project

Since my students sit in flexible seating choices during independent work time, they need organizational tools to assist them in being productive. These tools need to be portable, durable, and easy for second-graders to use.

IRIS Portable Project Cases, clearly labeled with their contents, can be carried anywhere in the classroom and returned when the task is completed.

Their labels need to be laminated for durability and interchangeable for our current curriculum needs.

The Carpet Spots give a visual clue for the transition to our classroom rug. Here we meet to discuss and wrap up our independent learning time. The Carpet Spots are colored and work wonderfully for grouping students for turn and talk conversations.
