My Students

In this day and age, teaching students the joy of learning is essential. The third graders who will be using these materials are special, like all kids, because they have been learning on a computer for quite a while. Now, they have an opportunity to put their computer down and pick up engaging learning materials!

Learning the joy of collaboration through a book study and hands-on materials provides a variety of opportunities to truly meet their learning capacity and learning style.

These students are all individuals who strive to make a difference in our classroom, our school, our community, and our world. They come to school every day eager to learn.

My Project

Students will use book studies and engaging chapter book projects to make connections with the text, their peers, and the world. Being able to dig deep into a book and understand the meanings beyond the surface of why an author’s craft, a character’s actions, or how a theme impacts the plot is essential to real-world application. The students will be challenged with a project in relationship to solving a problem that is developed from their book. They will be given a hands-on opportunity to apply their thinking to a relevant issue.
