My Students

Enthusiastic, curious and creative describe my fabulous third grade students. These kiddos benefit greatly from the Hands On, Thematic Learning Community that is the core of our school's philosophy. We are a school of choice in a smaller community in California.

My students' love of learning is infectious and has helped me further develop social studies and science units to keep up with them.

Because of our school's philosophy, I am able to take my students on many "being there" experiences that feed their appetite for learning and tie into what we are studying.

These students push me to be a better teacher on a daily basis and I love being able to rise to the challenge.

My Project

Force, motion and magnets are all science areas that are difficult to understand without experiencing their properties first hand.

Science needs hands on activities to assist students in developing an understanding of these amazing attributes that are around us.

The Force & Motion and Magnets activities and literature will allow my students to cultivate their outstanding science skills. I hope to make science less mysterious and more concrete.

I plan to utilize these materials in small group scenarios where each student will get a hands on science experience. My little scientists should feel excited about learning and share their knowledge and expertise with their families.
