My Students

My fifth grade intellectually gifted students come to my classroom ready to hit the ground running. They cannot wait to see what lessons I have prepared for them each class period. Their eagerness to learn is absolutely exhilarating.

They are energetic, creative, and very social people.

Based on their willingness to attempt any challenge, excitement after successes, and ability to recover quickly from failures, they are destined for great things in the future.

I truly believe in my students and look for opportunities to support them in every way I possibly can and to provide opportunities within my classroom that will continue to expand their imaginations, their strengths, and their weaknesses in order to give them every possible chance of becoming the wonderful leaders of tomorrow I know they can be.

My Project

Mississippi Intellectually Gifted Outcomes require gifted students to create works of art that are based on subject matter and personal interests, as well as learning to create criteria from which they evaluate works of art. In the unit presented to them, my students will learn the history of various artists, as well as about art principles. They will use these as a basis for their evaluation system. They will learn to fairly assess works created by themselves, their peers, and even various well known artists' styles.

These canvas boards and acrylic paint sets will allow my students to create original works of art influenced by the styles of their favorite artists.

The students will create a variety of products to add to their portfolios.

Giving my students the opportunity to delve into the styles of well known artists and create their own artwork in their chosen styles will give my students the ability to explore their creative side. This artistic outlet will serve as means of creative self expression, as well as possibly giving them them a means of stress relief and for some even a future career path.
