Our students are special because they live in a small, rural, forest community. They can look outside and see turkeys running on the grass, cows in the fields, squirrels in the trees, and birds nesting near our windows. Our students are lucky to live in a supportive community that is fairly small so they do not go unnoticed.
Sadly, our schools are continually receiving less money toward student education.
As a long time teacher I am motivated to provide my classroom with as many opportunities as possible. Each year student needs increase academically, socially, and financially.
What our students do have, is fresh air and beautiful scenery around them. I would like to use that to enhance their education to its fullest.
I have written a project for the Life Cycle of a Salmon. We will be raising Salmonids in our classroom in January. As a contrast students will also view the similarities and differences of the life cycle of a frog. I have a student whose dad will be responsible for gathering the tadpole eggs and bringing them into our room.
Imagine the excitement in our third grade classroom as the tadpoles emerge from the eggs.
I love bringing science to life in our sweet little classroom. Students will use science, math, technology, and literature to discover this amazing cycle of life.
