My Students

My students are fun and active. They like to stay on the move and find out different things as they go along. They enjoy music and great activities that engage their minds and bodies. They get excited when it’s time for centers and are always asking for more active learning assignments. My students keep me on my toes and enjoy learning just as much as I do. The school is striving to be on top and to get scores and grades improved and I think that with more focused and ingaged students those goals can be achieved.

My Project

These tools are important to the classroom environment and are needed to not only help the students but me as the teacher. It is important to support the teachers and supply them with the necessary tools to educate the young minds of tomorrow. Schools and classrooms should be a safe place where students and educators can come and learn, support, and grow as a family. I want my class to feel welcoming and warm. I want it to be a community where each and every student can be themselves and have fun while learning and passing. Third grade is the start of the tough grades and I want to ensure that my students are ready and well equipped for the challenges. These materials will help me engage my students in group activities and supply me with tools I need to educate them and to provide with the tools they need to but only pass to the next grade but also pass the 3rd grade Gate Test.
