Grasping Great Gems of Learning

My Students

My students are unique, as well as their abilities. I have students who are willing to work hard despite the different circumstances and backgrounds that they come from.

My classroom is not a one-size-fits-all; and neither are my students.

Their needs are as unique and individual as each of them are. Students range in being below grade level, being on grade level, and being above grade level. Where one child is especially strong in math, they may be weak in reading. Despite challenges, and their strengths, they are willing to help each other, are supportive, respectful, hard workers and most important are on their way to becoming life long learners.

My Project

These materials will allow my students to be able to increase their learning. Each student will be able to use these materials in a variety of ways, which attributes to their individual needs, so everyone is making growth!

Non fiction books about the incredible story of our country will help students fine tune their reading skills and strategies while sparking a love for our great Nation.

Art materials will allow my students to create and apply the principles and skills that they are learning across curriculums. The students will be able to construct their responses through the medium of art!
