My Students

My first grade learners love expanding their knowledge through the use of hands-on materials and movement.

Their little personalities shine when they are able to learn in creative ways and actively participate in daily learning.

When they are able to explore with their hands, they not only enjoy learning but gain concrete understanding through authentic experiences.

My students cherish activities that allow them to be mobile and work with their friends or teacher. They love to talk and share their ideas.

My Project

Each school year I begin by teaching my students all about growth mindset.

We take our time building a classroom culture where it is ok to make mistakes.

Even at 6 years old, my students learn about how their attitudes effect them. We work hard throughout the year to establish a culture of self evaluation as we set goals and find new ways to achieve them. These books would be a valuable resource in helping students understand the concept of growth mindset and allow them to relate to book characters to see how growth mindset can play out in their own lives.
