My Students

Our school strives to develop a love of learning in all our amazing students. Every teacher at our school knows that each child has his/her strengths. It is my hope that the students in my classroom feel safe enough to take risks while learning. GS Tigers care about one another and consistently demonstrate kindness and helpfulness.

My class consists of 20 amazing students: four are struggling readers, one receives resource services, and three are in speech.

They all have a positive attitude toward learning and growing each and every day!

My Project

First, the marble set will allow students to flex their newly forming "engineering muscles." Also, the cash register will give students the opportunity to practice their newly learned money skills and apply them to real world situations. The reading skills program will target my struggling readers with a fun and exciting way to learn word parts.

What can you do when your students get a bad case of the wiggles?

Lastly, the chairs will lend a way to legitimately "wiggle" during small group instruction, so my students can focus on the learning, rather than restraining pent up energies.
