My Students

3rd grade is an amazing year! Students are learning to become leaders and start to see themselves people with choices in their education and in their lives. They are transitioning from primary students to elementary students.

My 3rd graders like to laugh and dance, while also starting to take education seriously.

I want to give my students every opportunity to make the most of their 3rd grade experience. By making learning fun and engaging students will begin to have life long love for learning.

My Project

I have found that my students learn when they can make a connection to the material that I am presenting them with. If you have never read an I Survived novel then I invite you to pick 1 up and see why these books are changing the way I present reading, science and social studies units in my classroom.

Students will be engaged about a historical scientific event!

The point of ordering these books is to present a whole project based learning unit. Students will chorally read about The Japanese Tsunami with these fiction/nonfiction novels. Then using Social Studies skills we will map out the tsunami and learn the science behind a tsunami. Students will be hooked!
