My Students

Every morning we begin our day with a Morning Message. The students are able to greet each other and share experiences in their lives! Each day is spent developing leaders and encouraging one another to grow to their full potential.

Our elementary school is full of students that love to come to school.

The joy on each of our students' faces expresses their desire to learn and grow each day. The learning climate in our classroom is a lot of fun. The students support each other and love to encourage each other to do their best. We celebrate large and small moments with pride, developing leaders throughout the year and celebrating their success.

My Project

Students will be using the iPad during intervention time, mostly. The students will have access to the iPad to complete reading interventions that will improve their basic reading skills, fluency, and comprehension skills. Students will also be able to practice basic math skills during Math Lab time. Assessments for student learning will also be given throughout the week. iPads can be used to give the assessments throughout the week, guiding instruction and making student learning tailored to the individual student.

Students will have the opportunity to improve their reading skills preparing them for real world opportunities and job skills.

Students will also learn how to navigate technology creating 21st century learners.
