My Students

My third-grade​ students are bright, creative and eager to learn. They genuinely love coming to school each day, ready to soak up all that they can and to participate in all the activities planned for them. Students come to school each day with wide eyes and eagerness. Our school believes in teaching students through projects or inquiry-based learning. We partner with the community around us and take our learning outdoors, as well as balance the learning in the classroom. Our school is a wonderful place to not only teach, but for students to grow.

My Project

I recently went to a STEAM conference and participated in an escape room break out session. I was highly engaged in the activity and would love to bring it back to my own classroom so my students can experience it too. During the session, we tried to solve problems that helped review curriculum that was being taught and use the answers to unlock various types of locks to bags that held the next set of problems.

I can see this escape room activity as a way to motivate my students and help them work together in groups to solve review problems.

The locks can be changed so that it can be played over and over again for all kinds of reading, math, science and social studies review. Not only will be students be collaborating and problem solving, they'll be having fun too!
