My Students

Since embarking on our IB journey, students have found many more ways to show their learning than what might be found in the traditional classroom. They still need ways to increase their knowledge base so they can then can use their creativity and critical thinking skills to enhance this learning.

I have a vibrant class of 6 and 7 year old first graders who are enthusiastic and excited to explore different ways of learning.

Teaching the concepts of science and sustainability to first graders is often tough, because it is hard to have them retain the information. While we can experiment and observe the world around us, concepts like responsibility, stewardship and sustainability are less tangible and require a more enhanced and hands-on approach. Additionally many students in this age group are more kinesthetic learners, which means that they need to be physically participating in the learning process in order to retain the information they are learning. One of my greatest goals is to teach to all learning styles so that ALL my students can retain the information they are learning and have fun while doing so! By making learning fun, I hope to inspire a life long love of learning.

My Project

We will undertake an International Baccalaureate unit focused on helping the students understand interdependency, particularly as it relates to earth's resources and the life that inhabits earth and relies up those resources. The central idea is that living things are interdependent and rely on earth's finite resources to survive. With the donor's choose funding, we will purchase 13 sets of 6 books to address these concepts. The students will read these books, based on their specific reading levels, and put together a presentation to demonstrate what they've learned. The presentation can take any form the students decide, from performance art to oral or written delivery. This project will not only help my students connect to the world around them, but will help them understand their responsibility for being natural stewards of Earth's resources. Additionally, the project will help the students build their creativity and confidence in presenting as well as enhancing literacy skills.

Understanding the interconnectedness of living things and finite resources is critically important for all learners.

By instilling this learning at a young age, I hope to inspire a generation that understands its responsibility to be good stewards of our finite resources so that as they grow, they make a positive impact on the world around them. Additionally, this project aims to make learning fun, while building literacy skills and confidence.
