My Students

My fourth graders want to be winners in life. They are determined to beat the odds stacked up against them! They are students at a high needs K-5 school in North Philadelphia. With 100% free breakfast and lunch, my students deserve a quality education. Many students have experienced setbacks and trauma but need to feel as if their life matters. They need to know that when they walk into my classroom that it is a safe, nurturing, and loving environment. It is a special place for them to learn and receive an excellent education.

My Project

Writing is such an important skill! All students need to know how to express their thoughts and ideas. Currently, we are working to increase our writing stamina using the Writer's Workshop model for instruction. The students started the year off using writing folders and worked to keep some sort of organization. However, it was my goal to transition from the folders that get very cluttered and in disarray. I am interested in transitioning my students in using a writing binder. This will help them to go to the appropriate section of their binder and use what they need. Learning to time management, organization and decision making will improve with my new binder system.
