My Students

Remember when attending elementary school meant sitting in hard seats at desks? My classroom has 25 amazingly curious students who are excited to enter my classroom each and every day. They come ready to learn anything and everything.

I am hoping to provide creative instruction with a variety of materials for my students.

My students come from many different backgrounds I want to reach all of their diverse interests I am devoted to creating an atmosphere where every child feels like they belong and are comfortable.

My Project

These materials will help my students engage in creative and fun learning experiences. I am excited to transform my classroom into an amazing learning space for students.

The picnic chairs will help the students be able to move around the room and collaborate.

The black lights will be used for a special math activities that are engaging and creative. The Flat Stanley books will help to enrich our social studies curriculum. In addition the light covers help to reduce the harshness of the flourescent lights. I know that these materials will help all of my students become excited and engaged in our classroom learnign experiences.
