Inside My Classroom

Classroom with comfortable armchair that says "Readers Throne"

The Readers' Throne

We use the Readers’ Throne in my classroom when students present their independent writing projects. 

Who my students work hard for

At the beginning of each school year, I ask my students to write about and bring in a photo of a loved one to put on display so they can walk up to that photo in times of struggle and success to remind them who they work hard for.


Amazon Alexa plays an important role in my class routine

Each student in my 3rd-grade class takes a turn as ‘Alexa’s friend of the day.’

Multiple entries for self-expression

It is so important to let our students express how they feel, though many do not know how.
