My Students

My students are six and seven years old. They love to play games, sing songs, play chase and do arts and crafts. They are lovely and lovable.

The students in my class are a curious, funny, chatty, joyful, hardworking bunch!

They are excited to come to school each day and we have a great time learning together.

When you ask the students in my room what their favorite subjects are they generally say math and writing. It makes a teacher's heart swell to hear those words!

My Project

Children aged five to 16 spend an average of six and a half hours a day in front of a screen. In a world full of screens, children are as captivated as we are by them. But we can make a shift and we can help students do it.

Our classroom is participating in Screen-Free Week from April 30 to May 6, 2018.

The items were purposefully chosen to provide playful engagement at home when the screen is not a choice.

The dice and cards will be accompanied by ideas for games, including solitaire. The felt and yarn will be made into little ice cream cones and "scoops" of ice cream, for imaginative play. The jump ropes will join the tennis balls already donated to provide physical play.
