My Students

"You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose!" - Dr. Seuss

My students are wiggling children who love to learn.

In the case of most of my students, they need to wiggle to listen. My students come from all different home lives. They don't fit into a perfect little box, nor should they. Students should be free to be who they are without the fear of the outside world.

My Project

The students will use these hot dot activities and pens during small group. The students will be able to work on math skills such as addition and subtraction. The hot dot pen allows the students to know immediately if they have the correct answer. This will help them know and learn on their own. The reading hot dot activities will be used in the same manner. These hot dots allow my students to work independently while having fun. The hot dot pens need two AAA batteries each. This is why I am adding additional batteries to the list. Thank you for caring for our future.
