My Students

This will be my first year teaching fifth grade at our school. This particular school was built to fill the diverse needs in this area. The school opened the fall of 2015 and is currently in it's third year. Although being at a new campus is exciting, it comes with it's share of growing pains. For one, there is a lack of supplies due to funding. Many of our students have been transferred from different areas around the district; therefore, they are an ethnically diverse population who have a wide range of income levels. Many are military families, non-English speaking families or families who have wonderful students with special needs.

Put all of this together and you get a school of extraordinary students who at times struggle academically because of the circumstances they face daily.

Here, we are all working together to create change and make this year a successful one for all of our precious students.

My Project

We are requesting wobble seats for flexible seating arrangements that encourages moment for focus. Many of my special needs kids feel like movement helps them concentrate and complete assignments during guided reading groups. During guided reading students have small group instruction that allows them to have time to work with me one-on-one to increase their reading and writing skills. I have ordered 8 wobble chairs for my classroom. This will be the first time we will have these types of options for our special needs kids. I know that these options will help my students stay motivated while on focused while working in small groups.
