My Students

My class is a family. Just like in any family, we have a variety of personalities that we work with every day. There are deep thinkers, questioners and experimenters as well as wiggle-worms and pranksters. Every day is a new adventure where we work hard at learning how to support each other in our learning endeavors.

One of the motivational posters in our classroom states "Progress is progress, no matter the speed." We use this thought to help us when we get stuck in our thinking.

We try looking at problems from various points of view and constantly help and encourage each other in our efforts to increase our understandings of the world around us.

My Project

In today's world, it is very important that students have a firm grasp on the concepts we study in math and science. Often I use diagrams, help them learn a mnemonic or teach songs to help them recall formulas. But life is so much more than memorizing a formula for a test.

It is not until students put in to practice what we learn, that the concept comes to life.

By having my new "STEM corner" filled with a variety of math and science manipulatives, my students will be able to predict, observe, question, maneuver, ponder, and evaluate situations like never before.

By utilizing the materials and the hands-on learning activities, students will learn how to "think outside the box". They will begin by problem-solving in the classroom and ultimately be able to transfer that new way of thinking to home, community and world.
