My Students

School is fun! Students love to learn and work on challenging tasks.

My students are very eager to share what they know and are very interested to know more and learn more!

They love working together and working on their own as well. It is very amazing to see them trying their hardest to show what they already have learned. They are always at their very best in accomplishing given challenging activities. They are very awesome! They are super amazing!

My Project

These classroom resources will allow more vigor in my classroom. Students will have more time working together on a given exercises and being able to share what they have learned. These resources will be used for individual activities and group works.

Students will use these materials for group brainstorming and then reporting what the group will come up.

Through these exercises, they can build good relationship with peers and learn together. The part where they share their output to the class will give them avenue to practice self-confidence and self-trust. These experiences will let them be proud of what they can do.
