My Students

I teach 2nd grade in a large, rural K-5 elementary school comprised of a very diverse range of learners. We live near an air force base and a large portion of my students have at least 1 parent in the military bringing us children from all around the country, many of whom have spent years of their lives overseas. These families have immigrated to America from Mexico, the Philippines, Sweden, Kenya, China, Haiti, and Iraq. Also, more than a third of the students are from low-income households. some have never traveled outside of their community.

My Project

These activities will allow my student to engage in science by providing them with experiments to high-interest writing projects. The activities will provide my students what they need to observe and investigate weather, explore the different states of matter, learn all about the life cycles of frogs, butterflies and plants and discover sound !

These activities will provide my student with engaging, standards-based activities covering 5 different curriculum areas: math, language, science, social studies, and arts & crafts.

My students will have access to tons of ready-to-use materials for exploring concepts in depth,and I can provide my students differentiated instruction strategies based on their ability level.
