My Students

I am the lucky teacher of 23 amazing, smart, fun, energetic, artistic, creative, and amusing third graders. We live in a small, rural community. Our school has a diverse culture. Included in our boundary is a Native American reservation from which a good part of our student body comes.

Our students all qualify for free breakfast and lunch.

Even though our cultures and economic situations are varied, our school is a welcoming place of learning, working together, and providing the best for our children.

My Project

Third graders love to imagine, create, and learn. They also love Christmas! We will use the Lakeshore Kids Around the World Block Play People to inspire their love of Christmas and use it to explore and expand their knowledge about children around the world.

Students will use the Chromebooks to research and then put together a slide show about Christmas in a different country, sharing what it would be like to be a child there on Christmas day.

They will talk about the weather, the customs, the food, the music, and the events that take place on or around Christmas in their assigned country. They will choose their country by picking one of the twelve Lakeshore Play People.

Learning about other countries, cultures and customs is important to me as a teacher. We live in a small, rural community where most of my students have very limited access to different cultures. I want them to know what life is like in other places. I want them to experience how big and different and amazing the world is! I hope to give them an opportunity to see life beyond themselves.
