My Students

This year I have a wide range of students. Most of my students are Native American, some that are eager to learn, others that will need that extra push to succeed. The children seem to work really well together and encourage each other.

I believe that all students can and will learn regardless of ethnicity.

They just need to be nurtured and encouraged to succeed. Some just need to know that they are loved and can achieve their goals as long as they don't quit and never give up.

My Project

I have selected these books about different insects, so my students can become familiar with a wide variety of insects. Some of the insects include bees, butterflies, dragonflies, flies, lady bugs, and my personal favorite, the walking-stick. I believe these books will help teach my students about the importance of bug life, and their need in nature.

You can never have enough books.

I believe that the more information my students gain from these books, the better they will understand why science and nature go hand in hand. These books will not only teach them about science but will also improve the reading a literacy skills.
