As Outside Temperatures Drop, Our Classroom Stays Hot!

My Students

I am very proud of my students! Student voice is crucial to creating the magical environment that engages my students and encourages them to become their best selves. My campus promotes values and ethics that are instrumental to human development and success.

My fifth grade students are some of the hardest working and kindest I have taught!

We work collaboratively everyday, and use appropriate tools and procedures when selecting what technology to use in the classroom. Choosing technology that promotes responsible digital citizens, while achieving academic success and advances is what motivates my students. When I find new resources for my students to succeed, I have to share and ask to see my dream of helping every student come true.

My Project

Students today love and need immediate feedback to ensure desired learning outcomes are met. A fellow colleague found Hot Dots and shared it with my classroom. My students loved the simplicity and ease of using this new resource during our guided reading centers. Every student in my classroom needs different learning supports. I have a diverse reading spectrum and look for ways to help support all learners and their reading success.

Hot Dots are being requested by popular demand!

Please help fund these fun cards! Thank you for supporting my classroom, students, and ideas to promote learning for all students.
