I have been a teacher for over thirty years. I believe in a child-centered classroom where all students are empowered to be life long readers, writers, and problem solvers.
My classroom is made up of a fabulous group of kids who love learning in a motivating and enriched environment.
My Second Graders are culturally diverse, enthusiastic, and have a range of ability levels and interests, including a passion for learning.
My students are developing their critical thinking skills using the Next Generation Science Standards.
Did you know that the Rainforests have covered large land areas on Earth for Millions of years? My students are learning the importance of the Tropical Rainforest. This includes how Tropical Rainforests impact our lives daily by providing oxygen, medicine and other important materials.
There are so many amazing animals and plants that live in the Tropical Rainforest.
This includes the different species of frogs that live there. Students have been researching information on the different types of frogs, writing reports, creating poems and learning about their impact on the environment.
By providing these two different types of frogs and toads as class pets, the students will be able to observe them, take notes, and actually understand more about frogs. The students will also have the responsibility to care for these animals on a daily basis as well as address a real-world problem - the dwindling of our resources and destruction of the Rainforests. This project provides skill-based learning to promote career readiness in what people can do to make sure the Rainforest survives for years to come.
