My Students

My students are active learners who love to try new things! In our 5th grade class we are always willing to rise to the challenge of learning. They have a wide variety of likes and interests but work together well as a class no matter what the subject. They are excited about school and spending time building relationships with others. Their ability to learn and grow is simply amazing. I can't wait to see what all we accomplish by June!

My Project

Students in 5th grade are expected to learn so much! Many of the concepts we cover are complicated and very abstract. My students need as many hands-on experiences as I can give them. The more they have opportunities to actually "do" science the more they are able to use new vocabulary and build a true understanding of the material. The same is true for math. When they are able to use base 10 blocks to see the relationship between places, decimals start to make more sense. Making connections between fractions and decimals is much easier when you have physical materials to compare.
