My Students

My students are K-5th-grade students from a small town. Many of them have not traveled out of the area, let alone out of the state. They love to know about the world they live in and about other children their age.

Excitement for learning describes the students in my classroom.

They have a desire to know more and learn more. I love the smiles on their faces when we explore something new. It is great when they come back the next day and tell me how they shared the previous day's class with their family.

My Project

We would like share the music that is in our head by coding. The students would like a Metatalab with an music amd art add on. This would give them the ablility to draw and compose music.

My students are very creative and this project would let them shine.

The will be learning coding, music and math all at the same time. What a wonderful way to combine coding and the arts. Please consider helping so my students can participate in the STEAM acitivity. They are so excited about learning and this would be a perfect match with our curriculum.
