My Students

My students live in a rural school district. 80% are low-income, 5% are special needs, and 5% are English Language Learners with 3% identified as gifted. We live near the border of Mexico and in-between 2 Indian Reservations.

Due to the fact that the majority of these students come from low-income households, they lack the basic necessities that would make their life much more manageable.

I feel if some of these needs were met, they would come to school with less stress and be able to learn at a greater pace.

But regardless of their backgrounds, my students are fun, energetic, loving children who are excited to learn and want to come to school everyday. They enjoy a great lesson. They are learning to be collaborative, creative, cooperative learners in a classroom that promotes project based learning for the 21st century.

My Project

The fifth graders in my classroom will be doing a performance for the holidays, along with several kindergarten students in their buddy class. They will be wearing Elvis wigs and red scarves just like the king of rock'n roll did. Their shoes will have blue covers to resemble the blue suede shoes, and one student will even dress exactly like Elvis Presley! When the lights go down, they will glow on stage using the glow accessories.

Creativity and collaboration explode on stage as students work cooperatively to sing, dance, and spread good cheer this holiday season pretending to be elves, Elvis Presley, and more.

This year's performance for the holidays will have children rocking to Elvis Presley tunes as they discuss kindness and the meaning of Christmas. All the students will be excited to get up on stage and act in front of their peers and parents because they have what they need to shine! This is an awesome STEAM project my fifth graders are super excited to work on and perform.
