My Students

I teach a group of highly motivated Fourth graders. My students are special to me because they inspire me to work harder every day. They’re creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! My students come to school each day ready to push themselves out of their comfort zone, to grow personally and academically! They strive to help their peers and want everyone to succeed. I love their outgoing, hardworking personalities and want to see that continue to grow every day!

My Project

My students are always looking for ways to develop in depth knowledge of what it is they are to achieve in each question they are working on. To develop this knowledge they need a clear understanding of the vocabulary they encounter daily.

With these composition books my students will be creating a resource guide with new vocabulary words containing samples of the words they have grown to learn throughout the year.

My students will be able to complete activities, draw pictures, and put examples with use of the words to build in depth knowledge and understanding of the new vocabulary!
