My Students

Students at my school are absolutely awesome. They walk into the classroom with a smile on their face and love school; they put their heart and soul into learning.

They are so eager to learn and want to have fun while doing so.

I want to be sure to provide them with a great education. It's important to make school fun so that they want to be there. I love each one of them and want to guide them to be successful.

My Project

Morning tubs are a great tool for socialization, creativity and exploration. They provide the students with opportunities for play with their peers and collaborative learning. The students will choose a tub with materials and will have time "think outside the box" to create something special. I want students to have fun while they are exploring.

Morning tubs will also give them time to interact, practice their spelling words using letter connecting cubes or stamps, and become great explorers.

The morning tubs will also be used throughout the school day when time allows; they will be available to use during indoor recess and some days they will be used during centers.
