My Students

This Fourth-grade classroom is full of talented and diverse students. They are aspiring artists, athletes, scientists, and even teachers! A daily dose of energy comes with these active learners as they leave their busy schedules at home and do their best to focus on the academics being taught to them.

In order to encourage students to be a "Cut-above" and provide the best education possible for these eager young minds, we employ a variety of activities to keep their bodies and minds moving and thinking.

They love helping create and engage in activities while they enjoy their daily dose of learning.

Questions are a welcome part of our routine as students dig deeper into the complex concepts they are being exposed to. To answer questions, we encourage peer responses to promote deeper levels of thinking. Keeping them engaged and actively learning is a daily challenge that we strive to achieve.

My Project

We are requesting brushes, pastels, watercolor paint, compasses, scissors and more. Students who use their creativity to elaborate on academic concepts will more aptly utilize classroom lessons in their lives. The materials in this project will provide students with creative opportunities to extend lessons and deepen understanding.

By having access to a variety of tools, both academic and artistic, students will be able to take understanding to the next level.

Integrating academics, such as Science, Math and Language Arts with the kinesthetic properties of art, will instill a greater knowledge and extract the intrinsic value of education. Whether using scissors to create vocabulary cards, a compass to reinforce circumference, or painting the water cycle, these tools are expected to contribute to a high learning outcome.

Providing hands-on learning experiences for students is a sure way to accommodate a variety of learning styles and encourage lifelong learners.
