My Students

My students are kind and friendly and love to share aloud in class. They love to work on projects and are motivated to create awesome looking products. I love to be able to provide students with everything they need to be successful on these projects. In addition, my students love to read and enjoy being successful in school.

Students love to see their work hanging in and around the classroom.

They want to be successful! Students are asked to complete various projects at the end of each unit in Language Arts and Literacy Class. I want their work to stand out and look great. Being able to provide students with everything they need to complete a great looking project is important to me!

My Project

My students enjoy working in collaborative groups. They also are proud of what they create. My LA and Literacy students will be putting together group poetry books to display and share with parents and other classrooms. I am asking for plastic sleeve protectors, file folders and 3 ring binders so groups of students can create professional looking projects. Students will use the folders to organize their rough drafts and notes. They will use the sleeve protectors to keep their final product nice and wrinkle free. The 3-ring binders will be used to display their end of unit evidence (poetry books).
