My Students

My 4th graders are creative, enthusiastic learners, and they love to think outside of the box! Instead of wrapping up our geography unit with a test, for example, we created 3D maps of our beloved state, painted, labeled, and added unique and personal touches that illustrated all we'd learned about maps, land forms, and Texas regions. We concluded our poetry unit by hosting a "poetry cafe," complete with "coffee" (hot cocoa) and rich literature read out loud by our student writers.

My Project

I teach two groups, who rotate through the same classroom. Keeping books, notebooks, and writing utensils organized is a daily challenge. Because of this, I am requesting zippered binders with ample room for a notebook, pencils/pens, folders, and independent reading books. This way, my students will have all of their materials in one space and we will not waste instructional time filing materials in different spots in the room. There will also be minimal loss of materials and less frustration during transitions.

I am also requesting a guided reading set of Carolyn Marsden's beautiful novel, "The Gold Threaded Dress" which tackles contemporary issues faced by third culture and immigrant kids.
