My Students

The faces of the 5th grade students that are about to embark into a year of learning with me this school year are still unknown to me. However, after five years of working with students at this age, I've found that a few things hold true each year-- my kids want to learn, my kids want to grow, and my kids want to know they are loved.

The young scholars in my classroom are eager to learn more about the world and ways they can make their mark upon it.

For many of my students, sometimes it's hard to imagine what lies beyond the city limits of our rural town, the obstacles of the poverty they witness daily, and the negative labels placed upon them in the past.

Each year, my goal is to encourage, support, and guide them past these limitations and challenge them to aim towards the stars of their individual dreams and goals. And each year, my students and I are overjoyed by the progress and learning made, the positive relationships of support created, and the smiles fueled by moments of learning in our classroom.

My Project

Music has and will always be a powerful educational tool. Most of us can credit our early learning to the use of music in some form. The alphabet, an important basic of education, is almost always taught to the same timeless melody. Why? Because it works!

Music is a mighty tool and the makers of Flocabulary know how to use it.

Give a student a study guide over the five nonfiction text structures and it will be lost to the confines of their backpacks by recess. Give a student catchy lyrics and a beat to nod their head to and they can master the characteristics and signal words of cause and effect versus description before you call them for lunch.

How do I know? I witnessed it! Using a trial of Flocabulary last year, my students did not only learn, but they were eager about it too! Visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners alike were jamming in and out of their seats, helping me create motions for songs, answering questions to the quizzes, and soaking in the vocabulary. (Yes, you read that right: vocabulary!)

Now that my free trial of Flocabulary has expired, I'm aiming to find a way to bring the beat of engaging learning back to my classroom for literature, social studies, and beyond!
