My Students

My students are an inquisitive and bright group of first graders. They are eager to learn and be at school each day. They love to read and sing, and their eyes sparkle when presented with a new challenge or learning surprise!

My students are a diverse group of learners and have different strengths and needs.

One thing they all have in common is that they enjoy being a part of the school community and are so determined to keep learning and growing!

My Project

This spring my students will dive into the enriching and challenging Next Generation Science Standards. They will be asked to closely study plant and animal growth, and compare and contrast young and adult plants and animals.

We need seeds and small pots in order to plant and document the different growth stages of flowers and vegetables.

We also need an aquarium, to which I will add live fish and snails, to create a real habitat in our classroom. We will take notes and make scientific drawings and inquiries about what might, or is, happening in this tiny habitat before our eyes.
