My Students

When you walk into our classroom, you will see a racially and economically diverse group of students, working together, talking, sharing ideas and challenging each other to learn and grow. The group is academically mixed, with some children performing well above grade level, and some for whom academic learning is difficult. Children with learning differences are fully integrated into the life of the classroom, and an outside observer would not be able to tell who is struggling academically and who is not. Because students have different strengths and learn in different ways, we create opportunities for students to both learn and express their knowledge in multiple ways. We value cooperative learning and children work together on projects to expand and demonstrate their knowledge.

My Project

Every day our students have the opportunity to create. Throughout the year they quickly go through paper, clay, tape, glue and paint. Not only do we need to replenish these materials often, but with new materials we have the opportunity to inspire their creativity and innovation.

These materials will push our students beyond the basic paper and tape project.

They will be encouraged to try out different mediums and forms of expression. In addition, these materials will also be used for curriculum related projects. As we study the Eastern Woodlands and create collages of indigenous animals, embroider self-portraits in the beginning of the year, and have open-ended project time, these materials will bring the students' ideas to life.
