My Students

Fourth grade is always an adventure! We never know where our learning will take us. In our room, we're always looking for ways to meet the learning styles of kinesthetic, visual, audio, and logical learning. By the end of the school year, I want my students to see the value of learning something new.

Our class is made up of 27 kind​, creative students who are eager to learn new material.

This year, my students have really worked towards persevering through difficult tasks. This is our favorite quote: "Be like a postage stamp, stick to something until you get there!" -Josh Billings

My Project

Imagine replacing worksheets and sitting with locks, secrecy codes and challenging puzzles. My project is for a Breakout EDU kit which includes multiple locks, lock boxes, UV light, invisible ink pen and other tools that my little detectives will use to solve a variety of problems. The Breakout EDU platform has games that cover a variety of topics including fractions, digestive system, and mummies. My students will work through the curriculum by working together to solve puzzles.

For my student's first Breakout lesson, my class will work together to discover the power of renewable energy!

Once my students experience their first Breakout lesson they will be hooked! Hands-on​ learning is the best!
