My Students

I teach fourth grade in a small, rural, central Pennsylvania town. I currently see almost 100 students, more than half of whom are from low-income housing. As with most rural districts, we have a very tight budget, but I work to incorporate as many activities as possible into our curriculum. I want to make the experience of learning memorable and am constantly devising new stations, labs and other fun activities to help key ideas stick in my curious students' minds.

Hands-on activities allow my students to fully experience the topic we are discussing.

Rather than simply reading about a science idea, the children love it! This multi-sensory approach anchors the concepts in the minds of my students and has helped them to become some of the top performers in standardized testing in our district.

My Project

Let's face it. Indoor recess can be a real drag. Winter is approaching which means the kids will probably be spending more time indoors during recess. I would like to give the kids some new options fro indoor recess. Some new board games would be a perfect choice. The games I picked have the classic retro look which I believe will make them even more popular! Some new games would help to make the time more exciting when we must stay inside. Also, a speaker for our room projector would be a big help. We do a lot of media work in science and our projector's tiny speaker doesn't work so well. It is way to quiet and the kids miss a lot of content. Thank you for considering our project!
