My Students

I teach three sets of students every day. There are about 20-24 in each class. We work in groups, do gallery walks, projects, and experiments almost every day throughout the year. My students are energetic and love hands on activities. They love to teach each other and learn to work as a team.

In my classroom, you will hear good noise which means learning.

I also have a few special education students who join us during science and social studies. I like to keep everything that we do versatile for them and my regular education students. Working together is our main goal. We learn how much we need each other to complete an experiment or decipher a map or document. These kiddos have so much to learn, but they teach others and myself along the way!

My Project

Taking out old fashioned desks and replacing them with modern tables will create a sense of family in our classroom. Families sit around a table for dinner to discuss their day, we will sit around our table to learn and grow. Students learn from other students as well as from their mistakes. We work in groups often and need to be in close quarters.

Being together as a family unit will help them to make connections to what they may be researching or experimenting with.

Desks make that difficult, therefore, tables seem to be the way to go! My students will use these tables to work together to decipher the differences between maps, understand articles and read sources in social studies. In science, they will work together by making messes and testing hypotheses all while learning!
