My Students

My students are in a small school in a rural farming community. The students in our school have diverse backgrounds and a variety of needs. My classroom is a vibrant classroom full of the love of learning. We are a busy, motivated group who desires and needs engaging activities and technology. The students in my class love working in groups and sharing collaboratively about their learning experiences. The students in our school have diverse learning needs with diverse learning abilities.

My Project

Second graders love bugs and insects! This project will support the hands-on learning, about all things bugs and Entomology. The chromebook will allow students to read books about insects, write projects about insects and make 3D designs of bugs. The projector will be used for presentations along with showcasing insect videos to gather knowledge.

The Jumbo Insects and Insect Observation blocks will be used for activities correlating with our insect unit and to enrich the students' learning.

These items will provide my students with opportunities and hands on observations along with, giving them fantastic ways to present their knowledge, to others about insects. The best way to learn!
