My Students

I have a cornucopia of students with all academic levels and abilities. Our school is in a rural area and several of our families are low-income. My fourth grade class of thirty-one students is eager to learn, active, and enjoy exploring new concepts.

My students work through projects to discover the world around them.

Once instructed, each team is given an opportunity to dig deeper and share their findings in their own, unique way. We have weekly STEM activities to explore concepts, as well as additional projects based on interest and questions they ask about the world around them. Projects allow students to practice teamwork, communication, and problem-solving skills.

My Project

My classroom is in a small portable located next to the main school building. With class sizes increasing and the room staying the same, I have to be creative in how to comfortably fit all students and their belongings. I discovered that more space is available by removing traditional desks, adding flexible seating and tables.

As I addressed one problem, I encountered another- where will all of their "desk" items (books, iPad, binder, paper, and writing utensils) be stored?

My students need durable, plastic book bins to neatly store their personal school items. They are easy to store, take minimal space, and can be moved wherever the students go.

The plastic book bins will make for a comfortable and safe learning environment; less trip-hazards and organized students.
