My Students

I have a group of twenty six very interactive learners! We have a variety of different learners, and trying to meet their individual needs is very important to me. In our classroom community, we embrace the diversity that each person expresses and brings to our unique group. We have worked very hard to create a safe learning environment in which each student can feel safe taking academic risks and navigating through their own individual learning experiences at their own pace that is right for them.

My Project

This science unit is one of my favorites because the students get so excited and interested in learning about bugs! I chose three ant habitats because that will give all of the students the opportunity to collaborate in small groups together and watch and examine the development of the habitat. The gel habitat worked really well in my class last year because the students were able to get a 360 view of the habitat and tunnels that the ant had created.

I also chose a variety of nonfiction and fiction texts to go along with our insect and habitat study.

The students will have access to the texts throughout the day to further their interest and knowledge regarding insects and habitats.
