My Students

In light of our current situation, our class has moved into distance learning. This is such a huge learning curve for all of us as we are navigating very new ways of learning. There are many teaching materials I was not able to grab from my room and students are facing barriers such as a lack of access to technology. However, we are all doing the best we can to make this a conducive time of learning!

My Project

My students are in need of some basic tools to be able to succeed in their journey in Project-Based Learning and building their home libraries with meaningful books.

Our year-long learning project this year focuses on learning about Kindergartens across the world and how we can use that knowledge to design and build a learning environment that is a best fit for us.

Our students also participate in multiple home connection projects throughout the year in which families can help their child work on a meaningful, community based project to display in the classroom.

This project includes some materials that will help us with hands-on building which will be especially helpful for our kinesthetic and visual learners. We have also included resources such as book binders, spines, laminating pouches, art materials, and pens to help us make class books with the reading and writing skills we have learned through our daily academic learning and our Project Based Learning activities. We hope to keep the class books in our classroom library all year for all students to enjoy and at the end of the year, the books will be raffled off and taken home with each student for their personal libraries so families can enjoy them together.
