My Students

My new second grade students come from various cultural backgrounds and live in a diverse community in an inner city. Many come from low-income homes and several speak English as a second language. They come to school with inquisitive minds and a desire to learn. We set our learning goals weekly and work diligently together to achieve them.

My students are engaged and strive to be the best they can be.

Each day presents new opportunities to share their love of learning in many creative ways. Providing each student with the best possible environment to maximize their learning experience is of great importance in helping to attain each students' goals. It is important for this population of students to have access to hands-on materials that help support the curriculum they are learning about.

My Project

My students will use the National Geographic Pollinators books, and pollinating readers to research animals dispersing seeds and pollinating plants. They will make observations of plants and animals to compare the diversity of life in different habitats and how they are related.

Students will use the Where Do I Live Animal Match to help identify the habitats of various animals and how animals are part of an ecosystem, as well as the importance of being caring and compassionate to animals because we are all dependent upon one another.

Students will create a model that shows how plants depend on animals for pollination to move their seeds around for a culmination project of this unit.
