My Students

“The important thing is to create.” - Pablo Picasso

I have a classroom of students who love to explore, create, and discover through hands-on activities.

My students love learning about the outside world and enjoy coming up with projects that illustrate what they read about.

I have a bright, curious, and enthusiastic group of third graders who are always on the lookout for new ways to incorporate their learning into art and projects. My students are fascinated by the outside world and enjoy studying nature, animals, geography, and history.

We live on a beautiful island with many natural resources that I'd like to make come alive in the classroom. Through project-based learning, students become invested in their learning and want to share their discoveries with each other and the rest of the community.

My Project

These resources will help keep my students engaged and excited about learning in small groups! My students need sets of readers to learn about science and history. Incorporating science and social studies into reading allows students to make connections between the text and what we are learning about in class.

My students love to read, interact with math materials, and learn about landmarks and the world through touch and exploration.

I chose National Geographic readers such as "Owls" and "Narwhal" to teach students about adaptations of animals and stories like "George Washington's Dog" and "Teddy Roosevelt" to learn about history and important figures. I also chose math materials to use in my small groups to allow students to explore through tactile learning. I've included science materials such as magnets to allow students to explore magnetism and force as well as an interactive globe and figures of landmarks to help students learn about important historical places in the world.
