My Students

The students that will benefit from this project are 5th grade academically/intellectually gifted students. I have yet to find a topic that they do not want to explore. From chess to jury trials, the American Revolution to algebra, and most definitely anything technology related;

these students love a good challenge!

My goal is to meet their academic and social needs through rigorous thematic studies and collaborative group work. Every unit we study includes both math and literacy with a focus on 21st-century digital literacy.

My Project

During the final quarter of this school year, each of my 5th-grade students has selected a topic they are passionate about. They have been striving to learn more about their topic. Topics range from baking to animation, building a computer and building a robot, creating an architectural model to fashion design, and so much more! The students have been researching and gathering knowledge. Some have made attempts at creating products.

When the school year ends, I want to fuel their passions with materials specific to their interests.

That is why I have requested such an extreme variety of supplies and materials. I want to put these supplies in the hands of my students as a parting gift. As they head off to middle school, I want them to know that their passions and dreams are worthwhile. Having these materials matched to each students' specific passion will help me to do that.
