My Students

My students are very energetic and inquisitive. They love assignments where they can explore and investigate or predict the outcome. My students are creative and special in their own individual ways. I love that my students are eager to learn.

My Project

We start working towards our state research project from the first week of school. Each student is assigned a state and we learn to research and collect information. We start with abbreviations and capitals. We learn the year of statehood, region, state flower, state rock, tourist attractions, and important people. We learn the sections of a research paper, Introduction, body, and conclusion. We incorporate grammar and punctuation. Students are quizzed over the location of the states. This is their least favorite part of the unit. With a state rug, students will familiarize themselves daily of where each state sits. When we join together on the floor we can incorporate elements of the rug in games of memory. For example, “Tevin, sit on Maine..Chelsea, find North Dakota.” This repetition will make students more familiar and comfortable with states and their locations.
