My Students

I have an amazing group of artists who crave hands-on projects. Whether it is paper, clay, yarn, beads, or recycled materials, my students light up when it's time to create culminating projects.

The conversations during art have helped me to connect with students at a deeper level.

Despite the challenges they've faced during distance learning, my students show up to class each day with great enthusiasm for learning.

My Project

Being a third grader is a big deal for a child. Third grade is when students try their hands on cursive writing, commit to memorizing multiplication tables, and finally reading longer chapter books.

Most kids turn 9 years old during third grade, and can begin to relate to themes of friendship, sacrifice, loss, loyalty, trust and despair at a deeper level.

Books such as "James and the Giant Peach" and "The Tale of Despereaux" are perfect books to explore such themes. These two books have never failed to bring joy, laughter, tears, and a sense of wonder to students.

My project goal is to use the two books during Teacher Read Aloud and Student Independent Reading Time to encourage reading fluency and comprehension. Students will also discuss and explore the themes in depth and create a culminating art project with the information gathered. Students will also plan on "Acts of Kindness" they can show toward friends, family, and community as is demonstrated in the two books. And of course, the best part of this project is that students will get to keep the books when they're done with their studies.
