My Students

My students are such hard workers and are very creative! They love to learn. When I tell them that we are going to use technology instead of a boring old book or pencil and paper, their eyes light up.

My fourth graders rock!

They are kind, respectful, and curious. There isn't a moment in the day that a question isn't being asked. I love to put the answers in their hands, so they don't have to rely on me. The best way to foster a love of learning is through exploration. There is no better gift I could give my students than teaching them to explore and learn more about the world around them. Having a great teacher is important, but empowering students to find the answers on their own is invaluable.

My Project

"Does that make sense?" I find myself asking my math students this question often. The best way to ensure that math makes sense is not through direct teacher instruction. The shift from a teacher centered approach to a student centered model has changed my classroom dramatically.

Students learn best when they can make sense of the concepts on their own.

My job is to guide their discovery and learning. Using hands-on manipulatives is a great way to increase understanding. Students can explore on their own, figure out solutions, and explain their thinking. Having a materials to build a model helps to deepen their thinking. These Unifix Cubes will have so many uses in my math class.
