My Students

As a teacher working with students who come from low income households, I am committed to making a difference in their school lives. Many students have challenging lives at home and come to school to learn and have fun. The school gives children like the ones in my classroom an opportunity to learn, have fun, and succeed in school.

My students learn best through hands-on activities and play.

I love watching my students being scientists at work, artists making creations, readers looking at books, writers expressing their thoughts, and so much more. The children are building on their social skills and school readiness skills all day long.

My Project

My students love hands-on learning. There are many children in the room who enjoy bugs. We have lots of materials on caterpillars, butterflies, and ladybugs. When I went looking through the resource cabinet I realized we have little on ants. I love teaching about ants and know that the children will enjoy learning about them.

A hands-on unit about ants can cover many areas of development.

With the math games the children will learn continue to count and use one-on-one correspondences. With the many books being requested as well as a listening CD with books, the children will be able to listen to stories and look at fiction and nonfiction illustrations on ants. Finally with the ant farm the children will have ants to look at and get a closer look at how ants move and make tunnels.
