My Students

My students are from a very rural area. They have many farms around them with corn and animals roaming around. The land is beautiful and peaceful. There are no grocery stores or businesses that help support the local budget—it is all on the taxpayers. My students enjoy lots of bike riding when they are not in school.

My students are fun-loving, energetic goal setters who are eager to please.

These kiddos are very motivated to learn and they use each other's goals to advance in their own learning. They seem wise beyond their years when it comes to goals. They work hard to try to achieve goals they set for themselves. They are very inquisitive!

My Project

As education is moving towards more non-fiction titles to challenge students' learning, receiving more books will help my classroom library have more of a variety. I have picked farm books, farm animals, frogs, turtles, and penguins. Our new math program has penguins involved so I am sure they would love to read about them.

These new books will give the students information about units we are learning and help them have newer ideas then books we already have in the classroom.

These books will also allow students to pick new books for their book bins. We do independent reading daily and they each have a book bin to put books into. They will be really excited to have new books.
