My Students

My students are fabulous and very eager to learn new things! They hate when an activity in the classroom is disrupted due to having to go to specials or lunch! They are able to show that they care about their education and want to be at school to obtain more knowledge!

We have a variety of giftedness in our classroom.

Some who can solve a math equation in a matter of seconds, and some who know the definition to, almost, every word in a new story they read. There are some who are creative artists, brilliant scientists, and even some who are sloppy (in a great way) geniuses!

We would love for you to donate to our class!

My Project

I chose the mats for our reading corner, these will allow students to sit comfortably during independent, or group reading time. It gives them a new area to explore while being cozy. It is also very colorful which gets them more interested in working on it!

A future scientist could be in this class!

By getting the SuperScience articles for them to read, they will be able to learn all kinds of new information and it can pique their interests and cause them to want to explore more about the topics! These articles also allow for them to experience more higher order thinking with some of the questions provided. It helps the students obtain so new knowledge! And they love it!
