My Students

My students are a wonderful group of learners, leaders, and friends. I love getting to see them each day, not just to see them engage in lessons but to see their joy in being present in my classroom.

With one more year until middle school, my students are the leaders of their school.

They are funny, intelligent, kind, and ready to dive into the rigor of the rest of their academic careers. I cannot wait to see what they accomplish this school year!

My Project

My classroom library is bursting with realistic fiction books and fantasy but we are lacking in historical fiction and science non-fiction related to our grade's content. Through new books, I hope to give students the freedom to choose subject supported resources during free reading that will spark conversation during lessons and add understanding to what they hear. Materials such as PVC and tape for building pioneer wagons for Westward expansion are also on the list so that students can use both their knowledge from what they learn about pioneers and the Engineering Design Process to build actual wagons around their group's table.

This grant will add books and materials for project-based learning and add hands-on, visual experience to what we are studying this year!

Books about specific subjects, time periods, and foreign regions can give students examples of what they are learning outside an immediate lesson.
