My Students

Our school falls under the federal guidelines as being a Title I school. The students do not have the resources they need at home to enrich their education.

Our students want to learn and have a positive attitude towards learning.

They are a group of students that love learning about new topics especially animals and rocks. We are working on character education and many of the students are showing those character traits.

My Project

My students need reading materials they can better connect to their lives. The Time for Kids, novel studies, and math stories create a better understanding of concepts. My students need more 21st century materials such as the Time for Kids News Magazines. We are currently working on teaching reading through novel studies. The novel studies that we work on are high interest to the students. The Fourth Grade teachers will be able to get them excited about books through book talks and discussions. The Math stories will help the students make the connection between reading and math.

This project will affect the whole Fourth Grade at our school.

These materials will reach every child. The students are working very hard and having these materials will make learning more interesting and enhance their knowledge of the world!
