My Students

What a great group of students I have! They are full of energy and spunk. They have the best personalities and make me laugh each day. We call ourselves Rock Stars. They try to do things each day to help others and themselves be the best they can be!

My class has many various needs in it.

I have students from all walks of life and varied abilities. These students are welcoming of each other's special Rock Star qualities and needs. They work together as a class to accomplish all they can.

My Project

Students need hands on experiences to explore and learn. They need to challenge themselves to think beyond a lesson and discover new ideas on their own. Through the use of these toys, students with experiment with circuits and how they work, mechanics to create moving parts and create 3D projects, as well as physics properties in order for 3D objects to remain in tac.

When student hands are working to create new thinking, more learning can take place.

My students needs to experience learning rather than listen to it. I like to have the learning in my room take place through active questioning when new discoveries are made!
