My Project

My students have grown so much this year and I want to help them reach their peak before entering 1st grade. Instead of me looking up answers for them and helping them research their topics of interest, I want them to be able to use this Mac Book at our newly designed research center. My students this year and my new group next year will learn how to research their own questions at our research center. I plan on adding this Mac Book and more tools to help them research and learn everything and anything they are curious about.
