My Students

The students in my class or motivated 8 and 9 year olds that keep me laughing and on my toes every day. Many of my students are from low income environments and come from many diverse backgrounds, but this does not effect their ability to learn and grow a tremendous amount in our classroom. We work daily to build each other up and reach our goals as a classroom community.

This rambunctious group of kiddos surprise me daily with their observations, and the connections they make to our learning.

They love seeing pictures of my dog and trying to do yoga with me at indoor recess. They audibly gasp whenever they recognize the mistake they made on a math problem, and while sometimes they make me want to pull my hair out, I still look forward to coming to work everyday.

My Project

These colorful cardstock packs tie into the color theme of our classroom. We use cardstock all the time to help make durable art projects for display in the classroom and around the school. We also use it to make durable center activities that will last for years beyond our current class. It means our teacher will have less prep work next year because the resources will LAST!

Cardstock helps create durable resources that aid in our learning.

We are always using task cards that our teacher has made for us, and referring to the bulletin boards with important information to help us remember our learning. In addition, bright colors make things more exciting.
