My Students

My students are full of wiggles and find it difficult to sit too long at their desks. They are loving, kind and enjoy talking to everyone. They live in a world where it’s hard to slow down and just reflect our life.

My students work hard, but need creative ways of focusing all of that pent up energy!

They love technology...so trying to get them to slow down long enough to read can be somewhat challenging, but definitely worth it.

My Project

Studies have shown how music stimulates brain activity.... so we will be using the CD player with lots of music to get those growing brains working hard. The books will be added to my classroom library so my students will have more options to choose from. The more students read, the easier the comprehension becomes. Learning in general gets easier and kids can escape whatever problems they may have. Introducing the love of books is a way I can connect with my students. Please help my students and help me get the right books in their hands. I thank you!
