My Students

I teach a wonderful group of second graders. They love to read, learn, and explore. My students like to spend their days reading books, working in math and science journals, playing games, learning about topics like animals and famous people, and, of course, exploring the playground. We have so much fun in our class. I can honestly say that I learn something from my students each day.

My students are wonderful!

They see the world in such a new and exciting way.

My Project

My students love art. They really enjoy using materials like construction paper, markers, and glue to create fun art. This project will give my students construction paper in several different colors so they can create whatever their heart desires! It will also provide glue sticks and scented markers for even more fun.

There is something special about giving children the opportunity to be creative in their learning.

Children learn when they are allowed to create their own learning and share it with others. These art supplies will allow my students to stretch their imaginations and collaborate to create their own masterpieces.
