My Students

Our student base is a rural school with several students on free and reduced lunch. We have a very supportive parent system that encourages learning in their children. We are a Pre-K through 8th grade school. We have many gifted and talented students as well as varying levels of academics including special education.

We are continually striving for our students to have leadership skills and to instill a sense of kindness to all.

We want to encourage our students to spread kindness and throw it around like confetti.

My Project

My students will benefit from this novel, Wonder, by enhancing their writing process skills and mastery of Oklahoma comprehension objectives. As an eighth grader they have to pass the reading/writing exam in order to receive their drivers license. This literature based curriculum will ensure my students meet all standards and objectives.

I want my students to understand about differences and create a stronger learning culture.

As a teacher I want to create a culture where my students are becoming strong leaders and are kind to everyone they meet. Being able to read Wonder in my classroom will help my students to see differences and how to use our differences to learn from others through writing and team building activities.
