My Students

School starts in 2 weeks, so our class hasn't started exploring our classroom community. But I already know and love the kids. In addition to my 2nd-grade class, I also teach enrichment classes to kindergarteners and 1st graders. Last year I taught the Garden Ninjalinos and, in winter, Tea Party Tales. Many of the kids that I got to know will enter our classroom on September 5th. What can I tell you about them? They are curious and bright. One of them asked me many questions in the garden. They are active and affectionate. One of them insists that I greet him by touching our foreheads every time we meet. They are humble and brilliant. One of them asked me if she will be learning cursive during 2nd grade.

My Project

This year's theme is Choose Your Own Adventure. The kids will enter my room ready to map and explore their world. They will also practice the skills and values that all explorers use in life: caring for themselves, each other, life on Earth, and Earth itself.

My explorers will learn that one of the joys of life is the ability to make choices: Who will you be, what inspires you, and which way will you go?

How will you get there? What will you do there?

We will stock up on a variety of books about people, wildlife, and landmarks around the world. We want "Hello World! Greetings in 42 Languages Around the World." We will work individually and together to study and create maps, with books like "Where do I Live?" by Neil Chesnahow. We will read and contemplate choices with "Choose Your Own Adventure" books, and practice strategy with board games (these will also help with Rainy Day Recess.) And, we'll get excited about math, with skill-building stories like "Ten Monsters in the Bed."
