My Students

I teach 3rd grade in Plano, Texas. We are a Title I school, but that doesn't mean my students can't achieve anything they set their minds to. I love to teach 3 classes of science. I love when my students learn things about our world around us and why things work like they do.

In my classroom, we work hard everyday to achieve our learning goals.

This year we will focus on science concepts, topics and thinking like scientists. We will achieve our science goals this year!

My Project

I chose these items for my science classes, so that students can use these books to supplement their learning. The life cycles readers will help my students take ownership for their own learning. They will be able to read about the topics and apply it to their work. I also like to use the science readers when my classes work in groups, so that they can find information and collaborate with their peers.

I love teaching students with books.

I taught 1st grade for five years and I loved teaching my students how to read. Now in 3rd grade they can use their reading skills, find information, and apply it to their science work.
