My Students

My curious students attend a high poverty, Title I school. My school is a community, a family, where students not only learn academics. They learn character traits they can use for a lifetime. We believe in the scholarship of lifelong learning to promote future generations of leaders.

My students are fun-loving, whole-brain learning students with a natural desire to investigate the world around them.

I encourage their learning with tools in the classroom and also the mountainous area in which they live. This school is located in a rural town in the Appalachian Mountains. We're so rural we don't have a single traffic light, and we love it!

My Project

Kindergartners ask so many questions about the world around them. I want to help them find the answers. Weather is a wonderful place to start exploring. This text set is a unit that will answer those questions such as "What is weather?" "Why is it raining?" and "Why are there different seasons?"

These books all relate to kindergarten science standards meaning we are learning to read and investigating at the same time!

We will read the books, write in journals, and complete science lab activities with this unit. With your help, I can answer those questions from kindergartners while providing background knowledge for future investigations.
