My Students

My students come from a variety of different backgrounds. They are enthusiastic about learning and using technology in our classroom and at home. They love sharing their work and successes using technology in our classroom. They enjoy working together and helping each other grow.

My students love using technology to collaborate on learning projects and showcase their abilities and growth.

They are excited and eager to push themselves and apply knowledge in new and unique ways. My students are the future!

My Project

I would like to hatch chicks in our classroom. The items requested will help students observe and learn about life cycles of living organisms. Using the materials requested such as an incubator, brooder, and butterfly kit, etc., students would be able to see animals transform in our classroom and understand what living things need to survive. Students will make scientific observations and write about their experiences as they watch this life cycle evolve.

These activities and lessons would make such meaningful memories for my students that they will carry throughout their lives.

My students look forward to this hands on and engaging study of life in our classroom. This project will provide meaningful life experiences and valuable scientific learning.
