My Students

My students from Cedar City are a group of energetic, enthusiastic, and excited third graders. They come to school with loads and loads of energy and pour that energy into the classroom! They love learning about animals, other cultures, reading exciting and funny texts, learning new math concepts, and exploring the world through science.

Due to COVID-19 and their time in online learning, many of my energetic students struggle keeping up with the coursework, staying motivated during class and controlling their emotions in difficult circumstances.

These are valuable skills that are under developed due to the loss of learning during these challenging COVID-19 years. They have hearts of gold and continue to improve and learn daily, both academically and socially.

My Project

COVID-19 had a huge impact on my students and their academic and emotional needs. These resources will provide engaging and exciting new ways to learn and motivate students!

First, math manipulatives will help students deepen their knowledge of multiplication, division, and fractions.

These are difficult concepts taught in third grade, especially if there is already a deficit in learning. These manipulatives will give students the opportunity to use their hands to learn!

Second, my students need to learn to love reading, and providing fun/exciting books for them to pick from can do just that! I have selected books I know my students are interested in to motivate them to pick up a book and read!

Last, but certainly not least, there are many resources to help my students develop social and emotional skills. COVID has impacted their ability to manage their emotions, communicate effectively, and maintain grit when facing problems. These resources will help my students learn to work hard and not give up, as well as give them valuable tools in managing themselves responsibly.
