My Students

Fourth grade is always an adventure! We never know where our learning will take us. In our room, we're always looking for ways to meet the learning styles of kinesthetic, visual, audio, and logical learning. By the end of the school year, I want my students to see the value of learning something new.

Our class is made up of 25 kind, creative students who are eager to learn new material.

This year, my students have really worked towards persevering through difficult tasks. This is our favorite quote: "Be like a postage stamp, stick to something until you get there!" -Josh Billings

My Project

My students are active ten year olds who are always craving hands-on learning. With the K'NEX Maker's Kit Wheels, my students will build their own vehicles. They will collaborate with their classmates on the design and engineering on the models.

K'NEX Maker's Kit Wheels will help my students tap into their imagination while developing science, math, and cooperative learning skills.

I can imagine how wonderful it would be to explore motion while building replicas of real-world models! My students will be improving their fine motor skills and building their communication skills, all the while sparking their creativity. I bet with these K'NEX, my students will be counting down the minutes until they can build wheeled wonders!
