My Students

The students in my classroom are full of energy, motivation and love to learn. Each have such caring and loving hearts. They all come from their own unique background. The majority are from military families and they are so proud of their moms and dads who serve!

They love learning through acting, exploring and demonstrations.

When they practice reading with readers theater, explore with hands-on activities and can actually see their learning happening before their eyes, they blossom as learners.

My Project

In our curriculum my students are learning about the solar system, the Earth, seasons and daytime and nighttime. It is hard to fully understand all of these concepts with a globe and a flashlight. Let's be honest, it's just not as engaging.

We would love to have a lighted orbiter so students can watch with fascination and create a better understanding of how the solar system works!

Instead of just acting out the planets' orbits we can use the inflatable solar system to really create a visual effect! With all the hands-on learning these tools would bring to our lesson, we greatly would extend our learning!
