My Students

My students are a lively bunch of kiddos that come from all different backgrounds. We are also a Title I school which means many of our students receive a free or reduced lunch. Even though many of my students have a lower socio-economic background this does not stop them from striving to reach their goals.

My students come to school ready to engage in whatever activity it is we have planned for that day no matter the day of the week.

They are eager to learn and achieve success in the classroom as well as in life.

My Project

This story will teach students how Native children lived during the 1400s. We begin each year talking about the exploration of America and one thing students struggle to understand is who was already here and how they lived.

This book will give students a visual of who was already living in American and how the settling of Europeans affected the Natives.

Students enjoy learning through novels and this book will give them that opportunity.

Learning about American history can sometimes be challenging and seem boring to fifth graders because it is such an abstract thought and happened so long ago. This book will directly relate to them because it is about kids that are their age.
