My Students

Hello,

We are a group of 4th grade students notably known as the dream achievers!

We call ourselves by this name because we are students who continue to achieve and with the dreams that we envision, we will work hard to achieve each and every one of them. Martin Luther King Jr. said “I have a dream!” and so do we.

We range from the ages of 9-11 and we love to learn new things, experiment and most of all have fun. Our classroom is almost like entering a musical conjoined with an episode of "The Magic School Bus." At every minute and hour of the day, you can hear music and song blasting from our classroom from almost any genre, from Frank Sinatra to Beyonce to The Florida Georgia Line and beyond. This, in turn, helps us to stay focused, stimulated and memorize what we are learning.

In our 4th grade class, we learn more than the academic subjects. We learn about solving social justice problems, conducting service in our community, political activism, health, and appreciation and understanding of diversity.

My Project

Books like Greek Mythology for kids, "A kid during the civil right movement" increase my students vocabulary, knowledge about history, and understanding about different civilizations from their own.

These books will motivate my students to read independently because they will be able to interact with the characters and plots in these stories due to the fact that these books will have language, experiences, and settings that my students are familiar with.

Simultaneously, my students will be able to learn about rich history of other national and cultures, the power of change, and the expansion of their mind toward social problems of the world.

Ms. Bebe
Grades 3-5
Nearly all students from low‑income households
