My Students

Our students are a hard working rural community. They try everyday to strive for educational success and really enjoy the opportunity to share what they have learned with other students. They grasp on to technology to enhance their learning everyday, and the community is available to help promote their success. The students benefit from diverse opinions and experiences. More of these type of exposures will allow our students to grow more as learners and community members. I hope to help them with that development.

My Project

We will use the Scholastic News, Science Spin and Map workbooks rights away. These supplemental materials will allow our students to expand on their learning and will allow for them to develop their reading skills, and understanding of what they read. These tools are vital to enhance student reading and reading skills.

The map workbook will allow our community to have a resource that we can refer to in our social studies work and be able to show what we know.

The Science Spin magazine helps our students expand on their understanding of the standards we are exploring in class.
