My Students

Our students come from a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences. The neighborhood we serve is close to downtown Lincoln. Our school is a federal Title I building and has approximately 75% of our students receiving free and reduced lunch. Additionally, we serve many immigrant and refugee families from Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. Our school has a vibrant mix of cultures and languages with one-third of our building receiving English Language Learner services. We also serve a large number of Special Education students with a broad range of needs.

My Project

Our students are traveling to the Omaha zoo on May 16th to see The Symphonic School Bus and to visit the zoo exhibits.

From the Omaha Symphony's Website: “Seat belts, everyone!” There’s a new teacher in town, and she’s got a field trip to the symphony up her sleeve that is second to none!

Unfortunately, she and her class discover that disaster has struck and the world-renowned musician Gargamini will not be able to perform. It’s up to the students and the Omaha Symphony to help their new teacher learn to play Gargamini’s mysterious instrument and save the show. By exploring all the different instrument families of the orchestra, students will work to make their own dynamic deductions as to how each family uses vibrations to create music and hopefully unlock the secrets of Gargamini’s masterpiece. As teacher always says, “Take chances, make mistakes, and get messy!”

This trip will give children the opportunity to experience music in a way they have never experienced music before. Through this shared experience students will have ideas that they can use to write strong stories with a lead, beginning, middle, end, details, thoughts, feelings, and voice.

Children have focused on animals several times this year. We have learned about how to compare and contrast animals, their habitats, and their babies which has generated lots of interested in uncommon animals. We even got the chance to do a little bit of animal research and write about what we learned about them.

This is a great opportunity for our students to get out in the community and to see firsthand the animals they have seen in their stories as well as musical experiences they may not know exist in our community.
