My Students

4th graders believe in fantasy and understand reality. They are a pretty cool group of human beings.

In particular I have teach three Science and Social Studies to three different classes.

Sometimes they find little corners of the room to work on their projects. They are really funny people and I like to reward them with humor and logic games. We have a fish tank and are breeding guppies, because getting to know the animal world is just plain cool!

Learning should be fun and my students appreciate that.

My Project

My project is based on making the classroom comfortable and bringing in a meaningful experience.

My students can sit in the bean bag chairs and read about the very important Bill of Rights.

In the spring we can set "free" our butterflies after watching them go through the entire life cycle. I think it's important for children to have little nooks that they can go off into to create a little learning of their own and the bean bag chairs will help do that.

Thanks for anything you can do to help make our classroom a safe and comfortable space.
