My Students

"Every successful individual knows that his or her achievement depends on a community of persons working together. " - Unknown

My third grade class is a class of 22 kids that have great dreams of becoming something big when they grow up.

They are investigators, communicators, designers, readers, and writers. They need hands on activities and plenty of time to discuss their thoughts. They are growing together as a community inside the classroom which is a life skill that all kids should be able to experience. Now it is my job to keep that going and provide them a classroom filled with materials and experiences to keep their learning going. We are learning standards as well as life skills, both which will make them successful members in a bigger community.

My Project

Having a community rug in our classroom will enhance our community area. It will give students individual space to sit in to recognize personal space within a community area. Right now rug area can get tricky to use because there are kids sitting to close to each other and picking on each other, a rug with individual areas will help eliminate that problem by teaching it and discussing personal space.

This project is important because a classroom is just filled with kids learning in the same area.

A classroom is a room of kids learning together as a community and gaining necessary life skills while they learn the necessary academic skills. Please help enhance our community space and be apart of the academic experience of future community leaders.
