My Students

"Learning is not the product of teaching. Learning is the product of the activity of the learners." John Holt

In our 2nd grade classroom, we are enthusiastic, energized, and engaged in our learning.

We are always engaged in our learning whether it is independent, partners, or groups. Our teacher loves for us to work together as we learn valuable skills that we can use for the future. School work is important but we are learning how to become great leaders!!

My Project

Can you imagine what it would be like to learn if you didn't have a chalkboard in your classroom? My students are getting close to knowing what it's like!

Right now we are using a shower board as a white board for students to learn and practice math, reading, and writing examples.It has been an effective alternative, but it is old and stained with lots of scratches, which makes it hard to read.

Not only can a "real" whiteboard be used over and over without being stained, but students can also use it with magnetic manipulatives for math and reading practice. A new whiteboard will benefit students on a daily basis for years to come across the curriculum.
