My students are dedicated to showing others that kids can make a difference!
My students are clever, silly, hard-working, tenacious readers, dramatically expressive, mathematicians and inquisitive knowledge seekers!
They are budding ambassadors, engineers, inventors, veterinarians, world travelers, park rangers, NBA superstars, scientists, entrepreneurs, teachers, and authors.
My goal as their teacher is to create an environment that is warm, safe, and welcoming while meeting the needs of all of my students and preparing them to be citizens of the world.
Engaging elementary students in high quality nonfiction text is crucial to their vocabulary growth and for building background knowledge. It would be wonderful to have access to age appropriate but complex articles to integrate science and social studies with literacy.
The TIME for Kids subscription will help students grow as global citizens while building their perspective and understanding of their impact on the world through rich discussion.
Complex text with real pictures, graphs, maps and diagrams gives students great insight into the world around them and background knowledge to feel confident in discussion.
