My Students

Hello Everyone!

I am writing to you on behalf of one of the most amazing groups of students that are learning how small acts of kindness can absolutely change the world!

Together, we know that we have what it takes to make changes in our classroom, our school, our homes and our community.

We have spent and will continue to spend time doing research projects that teach us how ordinary people, through acts of kindness and goodwill have made a significant difference in the world that we live in. We have finished up our Martin Luther King, Jr. research, are in the middle of learning about George Washington and Abe Lincoln is soon to follow.

We use many methods of research in order to find true facts about these American Heroes. However, out title 1 school is short on funds to give us all the tools we need.

My Project

We are a classroom of first graders that integrate our social studies and science units into language arts research stations. We have began our famous American research stations with Martin Luther King, Jr and George Washington. We have independently researched about nocturnal animals and owls. We will continue to learn about Abraham Lincoln as we see that ordinary people, do amazing things to make our world a better place. As we use our computers for this research model, we will be able to grow our own knowledge base that will lead us on the path of becoming world changers. Our classroom motto is, "Those that are crazy enough to believe they can change the world, usually do." We believe that gathering the resources to help us get classroom computers is not that crazy!

Having classroom computers would aid in our independent research by allowing us to gather information on our non-fiction topics about animals and famous Americans.
