My Students

Virtual second grade is so exciting! The community my students live in can be high needs and yet, you will find some of the most resilient, kind, funny, energetic, and, most importantly, eager-to-learn students who are willing to climb mountains to learn.

Our class motto this year is TRY: Take chances, Risk it, make mistakes, and Yearn to do better than yesterday.

Despite obstacles that would be too much for many adults, they remain bright, funny, and fun-loving, and they really enjoy the safety and security that school brings. Our school not only keeps the kids safe, but it's a place where learning comes alive. It's a building steeped in passion and excitement, and it is my hope to continue to create a space that is safe, exciting, and educational!

My Project

We've been hard at work on Module 4's essential question, "How does food nourish us?" We launched this unit reading about the digestive system and now, we'd love to bring it to life!

There will be four stations in the room, each representing a different part of the digestive system: Teeth/Mouth (Chomping food game and playdoh food creation), Esophagus (creating a bolus from playdoh food and fitting it down the cardboard tubes), stomach (vinegar and water in bag students will break down the bread with "stomach acid"), and finally the intestines (marble track to showcase the 7-meter tubes windy journey.

The pink tablecloths, paper, tape, and decor are to create the inside of the body - inside our classhome! I want students to enter the "mouth" at the main door and have a chance to spend time with each station to better understand the journey food makes. At the close of the activity, students will use flipgrid to make videos of their learning.
