My Students

The 5th grade students at our school are curious, brilliant and creative learners!

They take advantage of every opportunity given to them.

They love to use modern technological tools to explore ideas. Creative projects, especially those done in small groups, are some of their favorite learning experiences. (Of course, this fall small groups may be trickier. I am creating this project with that in mind!)

They ask a lot of questions and learn best through the discovery of ideas. They need many opportunities to practice finding answers to questions, to make and learn from bold mistakes, and to collaborate in developing projects. These are the skills that will help them be successful in the future!

My Project

My students have realized that sitting at tables all day is a little less than ideal. We were brainstorming ideas this week on how we can vary our sitting all day, and one great idea they had was to use the floor UNDER our tables sometimes! They took the idea a step further and said what if we had lights for under there so we could turn off the classroom lights and read?

Anything we can do to make the day more fun, engaging, and BRIGHT will mean a lot to the readers!

I am requesting a full class set with plenty of extras and batteries so each student can have their own little light for reading & practicing school learning under their table when they need a break from their chair. It's a simple idea that will make a huge difference!
