My Students

I teach at a Title I school that is considered to be under-performing by national standards according to some professionals. However, I see students who are resilient and ready to learn.

Our students show interest for academics despite the challenges they face at home.

They are able to express their opinions and thoughts and have a sense of optimism and community. The classrooms of students have formed social bonds and relationships with one another which allow students to make social connections in order to work collaboratively and complete group tasks. When they work in groups, critical thinking, problem solving skills, and risk-taking is evident.

My Project

The purpose of shared writing mini-lesson is to demonstrate the writing process where I hold the marker and the students share their ideas to help compose the text together. Shared writing is also used to model spelling. This experience gives students tools and strategies they need to approximate spellings of words that are most meaningful for them.

Having an easel front-and-center will enable ALL students to participate in and create our shared writing together!

After the lessons, the stories will remain on the easel to serve as models for students when they create their own stories. In the end, each student will be able to say, "I'm a great writing".
