My Students

Each student is unique in their own way. In my classroom, I encourage my students to create, present and work together as a team! I want my classroom to be a place where they can comfortably learn in a safe and exciting environment.

My sixth-grade​ classroom is comprised of fifty, hard-working students, many of whom come from a variety of different backgrounds.

They come from all areas of town, mostly from an urban setting. This group is extremely diverse in their special learning needs, abilities and talents. This year, our entire district receives free lunch. Unfortunately, funding is extremely limited and gaining access to resources can be challenging.

My Project

I encourage my students to bring their creative mind into our classroom everyday but to do so, we need basic classroom supplies! Paper, markers, paint brushes, pipe cleaners,and craft supplies are just the essentials my students will need to take a hands-on approach to learning and allow them to demonstrate their learning in a different way. My students have been creating this list of the materials they would like to use to complete their upcoming Social Studies project! We will be creating our own Ziggurats and irrigation systems.

Students will be using recycled materials to challenge themselves with non-conventional materials to create their masterpieces, but would need some basic art supplies to decorate and complete their projects.

With the following materials the possibilities are endless for my students and will give my students more opportunities to work in small groups and centers to create amazing works of art!
