My Project

My fourth graders are absolutely amazing! My goal is to create a fun and active learning environment for them each and every day. Materials are always needed in order to achieve this goal. The kids will have a variety of seating options, and also the opportunity to learn while being actively social with their peers!

"All general learning is active, not passive!"

A lot of my students have to watch their younger siblings outside of school and have responsibilities that are out of their control. Within my classroom, I want to make sure they are able to just be KIDS throughout their day!
