My Students

The students in my classroom are curious, energetic, and fun loving children. They come from hard working families and are hard working students. Some of the students have been in more than one school in their short school career, due to being military families. We are proud to have a Navy Shipyard right in our town.

Like all students, my students thrive in an environment that is rich with books, art supplies, math manipulatives, and a fun, vibrant and functional classroom for the learning to take place.

My Project

My first graders work hard all week learning the first grade curriculum for reading, math, and writing etc. On Friday afternoons the students have "Free Choice". This is a time when the students get to play together using some fun and educational items in the classroom.

The students may not even realize it, but while they are playing they are deveIoping social and cognitive skills.

I have heard great things about Magna Tiles, which are basically a more high tech form of the traditional building blocks. I would love to have a set of Magna Tilels for my students because I know they would thoroughly enjoy them while learning through play!
