My Students

My fourth graders are creative, enthusiastic learners, and they love to think outside of the box! Instead of wrapping up our geography unit with a test, for example, we created 3D maps of our beloved state, painted, labeled, and added unique and personal touches that illustrated all we'd learned about maps, landforms, and Texas regions. We concluded our poetry unit by hosting a "poetry cafe," complete with "coffee" (hot cocoa) and rich literature read out loud by our student writers.

My Project

Many of my wonderful students are learning virtually this year and it has been a challenge to keep them motivated and engaged. This January, I had the opportunity to ship boxes of books and treats to all of my young learners, even the kids who are coming to campus for instruction (because everyone loves receiving mail!). I was so grateful for the chance to bring joy into their lives and connect with kids who I have only interacted with via a computer screen.

I'm requesting another set of prepaid priority mail boxes to send books, snacks, and other goodies home this spring.

I know it will make kids happy and positively impact their mental health during this extremely difficult period of time.
