Transformations with Mrs. S

My Students

My students are beyond amazing! We are at a Title I school in Las Vegas, where many students believe New York or Paris is just a few miles away on the strip. This has to change!

I have adjusted the way I teach from a text, or a set curriculum, to teaching to experiences; my students have never soaked up so much information in all my twelve years of teaching.

We use challenging vocabulary words each week and thrive to find multiple ways to use them, whether it be watching a live feed of a lady "coax" an abandoned puppy from under a house (this went viral), or having a Glow Party to learn about odd and even numbers. Our favorite was "traveling" to Italy for lunch and having to fix the menu that had no punctuation! I have never been so excited to go to work each day and my students that have attendance problems in the past are actually coming to school!

Please help us out..these kids are "going places!"

My Project

I am requesting materials to transform my classroom into a jungle, campground, and an army boot camp as we master second grade skills throughout the upcoming school year.

Students are eager to come to school each and everyday when the unexpected transformation could be waiting for them!

As we focus on nonfiction texts and parts of speech, what better way for my students to learn than in a jungle? Imagine learning about the animals, plants, climate, and sounds...all while sitting in the jungle (sounds like science and social studies are integrated too)! As we go through the tedious rules of editing with our writing, making it an army boot camp would add a little more excitement!

This past year, I transformed my classroom numerous times. Each time was a huge success and my students were able to have many first time experiences all while learning.
