My students are in fourth grade and ranging in ages from 8-10. Our school has 52% low income, which makes it difficult for many to take part in hands-on activities outside of school that would promote learning. As well, opportunities for field trips are hard for students who cannot afford to come along. This is why I want to bring the experience TO THE STUDENTS!
Walt Disney once said "We keep moving forward, opening new doors, & doing new things, because we're curious & curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
The most impactful learning is accomplished when students are surrounded by opportunities to soak in stimulating and hands-on information. My goal is create a classroom without boundaries and borders!
Each holiday teachers pinterest away inexpensive yet somehow still impactful gifts for their students. This typically leads to cheap 'do it yourself' trinkets that get lost, put into a drawer or simply misunderstood. I would like to start a tradition of providing students with a FUN, MESSAGE INSPIRED book for each holiday. This gift would be long lasting, education centered and hopefully over time a gift they will look forward to with each holiday. Each book would hold a positive theme, a central kind message and be their own personal keepsake to take home and share with their friends and family.
