What I love most about my students is the moment when I see their eyes light up with understanding when they make the connection with what we are discussing to another historical moment or a current event.
Often, students who may struggle to participate in other classes light up and become a part of my Social Studies lessons and discussions.
My fourth graders learn the history of Ohio, and I'm thrilled to provide this foundation and pride for our state.
Most students run out of school supplies by by the end of October. Without the basics (crayons, glue, scissors, markers, colored pencils, etc.) students are forced to share or use what is available in the teacher's classroom. While there's nothing wrong with sharing, it sometimes means that they have to alter their original idea and creativity.
Having the necessary variety of classroom supplies all year will allow my students to freely execute their ideas and prepare a creative finished product worthy of their efforts.
In addition to my Social Studies and Science classes, we are a "Leader in Me" school so displaying student work is a huge means of communicating to others in the building what we are doing.
