My Students

I am the lucky teacher of 32 amazing students. I teach a diverse group of learners. They are each unique and together we have a wonderful group of young students! My group includes students with special needs, students from low income families, and students who are new to our country. We have students who are learning to speak English for the first time. We also have students who have Autism. It is our differences that make us unique. Our blended community makes us a special class and together, we are a masterpiece!

My Project

My students will be learning all about different and exciting topics throughout the year! Some of these themes will include, the ocean, dinosaurs, insects, and farms. These materials will provide hands on learning experiences for every student. Students will be able to use these materials to explore and learn about each unit. Students will be growing their science knowledge through role playing and dramatic play.

These engaging materials will provide valuable learning experiences for each student.

Students will work together, as they manipulate and explore with these models. The realistic models will help encourage academic conversations and stimulate questions. My young learners will treasure their opportunity to learn and grow with such amazing learning tools.
