My Students

Welcome to Mrs. Blankenship's Classroom! Everyday we hit the ground running at 7:30 in the morning with reading, language arts, and math all before lunch. It's a GO, GO, Go type of world we're living in!

I have 22 students this year who are spirited learners.

They come in every morning with a "hello" or "good morning." My students come from many different backgrounds and socioeconomic backgrounds. Yet, they all deserve the same education. My goal is to give my students all the advantages possible.

My Project

We have intervention time after lunch, where students who need extra help meet with a teacher and the other students do enrichment activities. Since there are only 3 computers (which are 15 years old) in my classroom, I would love to have another outlet for them to use to complete learning games and activities.

My students will have access to more technology from the mini IPad to entice their learning and inspire them to strive to learn in many different ways, besides just sitting in their seats doing worksheets.
