My Students

Hello and welcome to our classroom! We are a class of 4th graders who love to learn! We are excited to share ideas, thoughts and experiences. In our class, we have great diversity from cultures, languages, and learning styles.

In our class, we believe in working hard, so we can play hard!

Not only are we learning math, English and science, we are focusing on developing life skills that will help us become better citizens, friends, and champions in the world. We are doing this by focusing on kindness and opening our eyes to the world around us. We love using technology to expand our classroom beyond our school walls.

My Project

I have chosen to have Alexa join us this year on our educational journey. I believe that Alexa will be a great addition to our classroom. I envision using Alexa to help my students spell difficult words, solve mathematical problems, set the tone of the classroom with relaxing music, helping deepen our understanding of new subjects, and many more exciting ways.

I believe when the learning is fun, the learning is for life.

The power pens and educational cards will aid my students in gaining greater understanding of mathematical solutions, and reading comprehension in a fun yet, challenging way. Because we all learn differently and at different times, the power pens and cards will encourage learning for each student on their own individual level.

In our class we understand the importance of keeping our room clean and organized. We have found, when the classroom is free of clutter, our minds or more open to learning. We will use the organizers to help us keep our supplies organized and ready to be used.
