My Project

There is never a dull day in 4th grade. We have 29 students in the classroom, most just coming to the United States within the past two to three years. There is not a day that goes by that I don't marvel at how strong these children are, coming from situations and places that would test the strongest adult. Yes, they are resilient.

Putting some fun into motivation is always the extra that makes the day for our students.

Stickers, fun pencils and a Jolly Rancher just adds the little extra something special to let our students know they are appreciated and loved. It's amazing how the room can come alive in a minute when that bag of Jolly Ranchers come out.
