My Students

I teach at a school with amazing students and supportive families. Everyone is willing to work together and do their part to ensure academic success.

Students come to school each day ready and excited to learn.

They learn (and have fun!) by exploring, reading, and writing. They are high energy and bring a great deal of excitement to the classroom. We love to stay active and use movement and games to learn. Our school is a great place to grow and learn together.

My Project

My county has placed an emphasis on student discourse and structured play. During this time, students work in collaborative groups to play new games and build new creations. Students develop important social skills such as collaboration, compromise, and cooperation. Most of all, it is fun!

These fun manipulatives and building sets will allow students to work together in an open-ended and creative setting.

Will they build a rocket ship? A pirate ship? A house? It's up to the group! We love to think outside the box. The possibilities are endless. We need Magna tile, Marble Runs and the building sets to keep our structured play bins fresh and exciting.
