My students need a variety of fiction and informational texts to expand their knowledge of the age of exploration.
Today's students are tomorrow's world leaders. It is so important for students to understand our nation's history in order to make good decisions for the future. These materials will motivate them to learn about various historical events and figures.
I teach 25 fourth graders in all subject areas.
The range of abilities varies greatly but all of my students share an enthusiasm for learning and are exceptional at working together. My students have a special bond that creates a collaborative learning community, thus they use language as a tool to construct meaning by discussing their ideas and supporting one another in the learning process. My students are naturally inquisitive and their diversity generates a rich learning environment. Every student shares a unique perspective molded by his or her experiences and although the needs of students differ dramatically, all of them understand the importance of high expectations and are committed to improving learning. Despite the daily obstacles that our children face, they are incredibly resilient and hungry for knowledge. We embrace challenges. Our kids are driven to improve themselves and our world.
By researching key figures and events of exploration, my students will formulate genuine connections with these risk-takers and they will take ownership in learning about the discovery of our country and the development of our world. Students will conduct research projects and present their findings to younger students, parents, and staff in hopes of inspiring them to pursue their own curiosities.
Your contribution will greatly enhance the educational opportunity for our students.
It is critical for our kids to gain skills necessary to compete in the 21st century! These books will ensure that our children are immersed in a literacy-rich environment. Just imagine the topics they'll be motivated to explore!Read More
