Second-grade is filled with magic, and our class knows no limits. We are always looking for ways to grow our "magic" by helping others and growing our brains. My students are diverse learners in different stages of development in our community that is on the outskirts of the city in an almost rural setting. They represent a variety of cultures, beliefs, and socioeconomic backgrounds. Some are second language learners. Over 50% of the students in my school qualify for free or reduced-price lunch.
My students are excited to come to school every day to be a part of our classroom family.
My students may not have varied experiences outside of school, so any opportunity to infuse culture, history, or a glimpse into the future helps them to be ready for the world they are shaping.
Our school family provides safety and love for all unconditionally. We practice kindness and how each person matters and can contribute important work every day. My students have found that when working as a team, great things can happen. Together, everyone achieves more! They have discovered that working together can level the learning field for all. Many minds make great things happen.
Our classroom has been growing and learning in so many ways. We are studying how to be better at handling our emotions and how to create new and exciting things with our 3D printer. In order to continue to grow though, we need more FOOD!
Books and filaments are the only food to fill our insatiable appetites for learning.
The collection of books in this project helps up to look at a variety of things we are still working on - how to handle big emotions as we grow. The 3D filament allows us to make fantastic projects and fun fidgets for class. Who know what grand adventures either will take us on. Won't you join us?
