My Students

"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn." -Benjamin Franklin

My 8 and 9 year-old students are eager to learn and absorb as much information and learning experiences as possible!

My class is made up of 25 boys and girls of mixed races in Arkansas, who are eager to learn.

My 3rd grade class is activity-based. Students learn through creative activities and collaborate with their classmates to master the standard that is being learned. To make these great activities, we need supplies to created meaningful learning experiences.

My Project

Learning takes place through various pathways to reach all students. In order to make this happen, my classroom needs necessities such as cardstock, printer ink, copy paper and binders to organize activities to match subjects and standards.

Hands on activities encourages students to communicate and collaborate through the learning process.

Effective instruction elevates the learning experience for the whole child, which is part of my school's mission statement. I will ensure that every child in my class will have numerous opportunities to learn through various strategies, peer collaboration and one on one teacher assistance. It is important to me that I reach all of my students and these basic supplies will help me achieve this goal!
