My Students

In addition to my home room class, I teach two classes of Social Studies and Math. In Social Studies, students work hard to understand the geography, economics, government, and movement in the United States. We enjoy Mystery Skypes with other classes around the country and use our Chromebooks to learn. In Math, students use hands-on activities and small group learning to master math standards.

We work hard and like to use a variety of resources to learn.

Print resources, hands-on activities, project based learning, and collaborative learning are ways that my 4th graders learn.

My Project

My students really need a resource that will help me teach the Michigan Social Studies Standards. We do not have any type of text book to use in class, and this magazine-style text and the optional web-based version will help me teach the content with a balanced literacy approach.

Michigan Social Studies Weekly will provide my students with learning experiences that promote critical thinking and will make them responsible decision makers.

I am excited to use the content to make Social Studies come alive for my students. The topics of US government, migration, regions, core values, economics, Michigan history are ones that correlate exactly to Michigan's standards.
