My Students

My class is an amazing group. We are a class that enjoys writing, singing and reading. Our curiosity makes every day an adventure. My class is comprised of 17 second graders. We have a unique class that includes bilingual students.We are immersed in STEM with an emphasis on writing.

Through the use of interactive notebooks, our days are spent exploring concepts and reflecting on our learning.

Being in a high poverty school makes receiving many of the resources necessary to experience hands-on learning difficult.

My Project

Having word journals will allow my students to develop confidence to write their thoughts down in STEM activities. My students are often stuck on how to spell instead of expressing what they have learned. Word Journals solve this issue by providing a unique personal dictionary.

Amazing learning deserves a journal that is STEM focused.

Each child has unique ways of solving problems or creating solutions allowing them a way to express through writing makes it more powerful. The STEM journal provides several guided experiences before allowing students to record their own self guided projects and experiences. This allows for personal growth and learning!
