My Students

Our class is made up of some amazing children. We are a very diverse group of learners with various linguistic and cultural backgrounds.

Our class is a part of a Montessori school.

Here we focus on teaching the whole child and we learn by doing.

We enjoy doing art, reading, writing, science and spending quality time with each other. Each child is unique and special! Our class has a great sense of humor and we give each other a reason to smile everyday!

My Project

Our classroom is full of authors and illustrators! We need a few new books to use as mentor texts to teach us new things about writing and about being a good classroom citizen.

We are growing as authors and illustrators every day!

Our favorite part of writing is being able to do the illustrations! We are in need of some pencil boxes to store our art supplies and some new goodies to inspire us!

We also are in need of some new materials to help us stay organized. With so many of us in the classroom, sometimes we misplace things easily. These new materials will help us learn the valuable lesson of organization and responsibility.
