My Students

I have a fantastic group of students for my second year teaching second grade. I enjoy being their teacher! Our school is in a small, rural town in West Central, Ohio. In my classroom, there are 12 boys and 7 girls who always push me to reflect and to create a learning environment that balances enjoyment, creativity, and hard work.

These past months of online instruction have highlighted the importance of student-centered learning.

Looking towards the summer months, I want my students to continue making academic progress by completing Summer Bridge Workbooks.

As we know, there tends to be learning loss over extended school breaks. With your help, my students can continue their learning over the summer break, lessen the potential for learning loss, and prepare for the rigors of third grade.

My Project

Given the unique times we are living in, it is crucial to have a level of normalcy for students. Normalcy means having routines that entail meeting goals and working with the future in mind. Our short-term goal is to prepare for success in the third grade.

The Summer Bridge Activities Workbook will help to review content students learned in second grade and challenge their thinking by exposing them to third-grade topics.

Doing these activities could potentially lessen learning loss during the summer months.

With your help, students will also receive teacher created resources they can use during independent work to prepare for the adventure of being third-graders.
