My Students

Being part of a smaller school means we all are closer to each other, we understand each other better, and we are more genuinely interested in each other. I have never taught these students before, but I have seen each one of them in the halls. They are polite and usually pretty happy with an extra pep in their step and a laughter all around.

These students have missed 3 months of in class learning and will need extra support.

However, they are strong, talented, and smart kids that will not let that get in their way of learning!

My Project

5th graders need to be active and it is known that even the slightest of movement while learning will help retention. The desk and chair bands will help them immensely. We do not have a Science or Social Studies curriculum, and I have bought from Teachers Pay Teachers in the past for both subjects. I need to make sure all standards are met, and I have normally spent my own money on it for 2nd grade. I need to replenish my stock with 5th grade material!

My students deserve a fun, and inviting, classroom.
