My Students

I love the collective effort that my students display towards learning! There are 25 students working together on a daily basis to fulfill our class agreement to learn, read, write, think, create, dream, and achieve with purpose and enthusiasm! My students are learning to participate in class activities with their hearts and brains. They are willing to problem solve issues with others and for themselves.

Perseverance, curiosity, and empathy are some of the big ideas that they practice daily.

They encourage each other to tackle challenges in order to further their learning. They are a fantastic group of students who are willing to try new things!

My Project

The Mag Genius blocks will allow my students to use their imagination while increasing math reasoning, spatial development, and logical thinking skills. Understanding patterns, strengthening motor skills, and developing geometric awareness are also perks of using these materials. The Magna 3D shapes will inspire kids to create a wide variety of designs while noticing the true definition of three dimensional.

I am excited to use the Q-Bitz games to promote hands-on visual challenges.

Each child can have a set of cubes to manipulate. Whether done as whole group, small group, or individually, the mental stimulation to copy the design is definitely challenging.
