My Students

Just as many other teachers around the world, I am now teaching my 3rd grade class virtually. We are able to communicate through various online platforms, but we all miss being together in the same room!

The current pandemic has been hard on everyone, including my students.

I want to give them an end-of-year gift that will provide them with enjoyment this summer!

My Project

The Never Get Bored Book will provide each of my students with the opportunity to use their imagination, be creative, and learn new facts this summer. They have been quarantined at home and frequently state that they have felt "bored."

Going into the summer, I want to provide them with something that will give them fun new ideas of how they can spend their time and ways to engage their brains in fun new ways.

This book is full of ideas - puzzles that can be done on the spot, projects that can be planned and created, and activities that can include the entire family.

Thank you for supporting my students and helping me give them a fun start to their summer vacation!
