My Students

My students are energetic but truly understand class policy and the importance of learning. Once they walk into the classroom, they go to their seats quickly, immediately get the class-related materials such as pencils, composition books, and workbooks out from a designated area in the classroom. A few students will help me to pass out the textbooks and other lesson materials to the whole class; then, the majority of students will ask me the question, “What are we going to learn today?”

My Project

Books, books, books... books are one of the most important resources in the classroom.

The book shelf will further enhance the organization of our classroom.

Students have textbooks for different subjects: Math, Social Studies, Chinese, and English reading; related workbooks and composition notebooks. On the other hand, I also have teacher versions of textbooks as well as various types of reading books such as fiction and non-fiction in classroom library. Therefore, you can imagine the numbers of books that we have. With an additional book shelf, I can organize all books more neatly. Then, everyone can easily grab books from designated shelves in the beginning of lessons and return those books at the end of school days. The teaching efficiency will most likely be increased.
