My school is progressive, diverse elementary school dedicated to educating the whole child. Our students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds with a significant number of economically disadvantaged families.
My class consists of two groups of 3rd graders actively involved in learning how to become excellent readers and writers.
Each student is a complex individual with a variety of learning styles, skills and needs. I strive to provide a classroom that is a safe engaging place to learn!
My focus throughout this year has been to create inspire students to fall in love with reading, writing, and illustrating. My students also hate worksheets, so I try my best to create different ways for them to show their understanding during reading without simply filling in a blank or matching a word with its definition. I have also found that my students love drawing and creating. It is my hope to use the art materials requested for this project to allow my students to create and illustrate books. My students will study and compare the reoccurring themes in books such as friendship and family. They will also reinforce their knowledge of our continuing study of the literary elements of characters (and character traits), setting, plot, problem, and solution. My students will definitely be the sharps author and illustrates with your donations!
This project will tap into my students' creativity and at the same time teach them more about literature.
By "We Are Sharp" my students will be able to show their understanding through creating instead of my simply filling in a blank on a worksheet
