My Students

My students are 21st century citizens of the world. They don't come to school each day to answer multiple choice questions or copy sentences from the board they come to solve problems, create beauty, collaborate and develop innovative ideas. My students seek to make our world a better place through gathering knowledge and sharing knowledge. They come to school with enthusiasm and put their critical thinking skills to work for themselves and each other every day. Together we are all working to a big, bright, beautiful tomorrow.

My Project

I am so excited about this project. It includes several new items that will spruce up my classroom. My students love stools and two new ones will be a great addition to the classroom. I also need some new books to really make my new independent reading program effective. I am most excited about the Echo Dot kids version.

An Echo Dot Kids will help make my classroom a "smart" room that runs with 21st century efficiency.

It will allow us to set timers, and reminders. We can listen to audio books and play trivia games. The Echo Dot is a kids version that is fully filtered and limits to kid appropriate content.
