My Students

I have 20 students in my classroom this year. I encourage positive relationships and individual responsibility for behavior and learning. Daily, we practice communication when feelings are hurt. Students learn to apologize and ask for forgiveness. We use Inupiaq Traditional Values to guide our behavior. The majority of students are Alaskan Native, so using Inupiaq Traditional Values comes naturally and links home and school. Providing these positive social emotional skills helps create a safe learning environment for everyone to grow and learn.

My Project

Our classroom is in need of a large carpet to provide a comfortable space for students to gather as a whole group. The easel is a tool to use during this whole group instruction. We gather as a whole class several times throughout the day for reading, math, read aloud, beginning and close of the day, as well as for social time. When students are seated together at the carpet, I can introduce a new concept or reinforce a newly learned concept using visuals on an easel. Having a whole group carpet and easel would provide integral tools for us to learn together.
