Explore Victoria Jasztal’s Classroom

By Victoria Jasztal
Grades 3–5

    I invite you to explore my world in room 202 at Moton Elementary School in Brooksville, Florida. My name is Victoria Jasztal, and I am the 2009-2010 grades 3-5 Scholastic teacher advisor. This year, you will read how I utilize technology, incorporate interactive bulletin boards, and how I have organized the books in my classroom library.

    I invite you to explore my world in room 202 at Moton Elementary School in Brooksville, Florida. My name is Victoria Jasztal, and I am the 2009-2010 grades 3-5 Scholastic teacher advisor. This year, you will read how I utilize technology, incorporate interactive bulletin boards, and how I have organized the books in my classroom library. You will also read a little how I conduct my day-to-day reader’s and writer’s workshop as well as how I organize an area in my classroom for math and science.

    This video was of my classroom for the 2008-2009 school year, so you will eventually see other videos and read other posts that show the changes I am making for this coming school year. I am going to make you aware of a few of the changes I will be making. The first is that I will be making my classroom a conducive learning environment for daily hands-on math instruction, as each group will have their own drawers for math manipulatives. Additionally, I will be organizing my books in bins by genre, category, and author. The classroom library and reader’s workshop area will be more open. 

    This year, I am ecstatic to be embarking on an exciting journey with you. In the blog posts I will be making here on Scholastic, I will be discussing journaling across the curriculum, preparing students for standardized testing, developing successful mini-lessons, and integrating science and social studies in reading instruction. I will also discuss the importance of affirming your students and helping them to become successful learners. Last, please do not hesitate to visit my Web site at http://www.teachingvision.org. Let’s make this a sensational year!
