My Students

My students love to be in a class together, and they love to learn in groups. They come from a high poverty area, and 86% are living below the poverty line. However, that doesn't stop their ingenuity!

My students know what works best for them, are always reflecting on their learning, and they love to find techniques to make their own learning more effective and more fun!

Part of our classroom environment means that students take accountability for their own learning. They know their needs, and we are working to fill them. They are driven and excited about what is going on in our classroom, especially during free-choice reading time. I enjoy seeing what they will do and say every day!

My Project

The use of spirals, notebook paper, and folders will help students stay organized and keep notes on their learning experiences. We are also doing dialogue journals, in which students communicate with each other regarding their novel studies. It is a great accountability piece, and it helps students reflect on all the things they are learning from the books they read. Students are grouped by their reading level, and choose books to read. We meet in small groups every day and write reflections on our learning. The folders also help students keep track of any comprehension quizzes or materials they will need as they do projects on their novels.
