My Students

My students come to class every day, excited, full of life, ready to learn. My classroom is full of diversity and every day, I am excited for them to teach me something new! I teach at a Title I school in Southern California where many students participate in the Free or Reduced-Price Lunch Program.

Every year we study Ancient Egypt.

Students love learning about this time in history. I think it would be great to tie more literature into our Ancient Egypt unit. I know my students would love reading the Egypt Game! I think it would help students use their imagination and make more connections while increasing their reading skills. My students are eager to learn and always give their best. They love being at school!

My Project

Literature and making connections to what is read, is a very important and valuable skill. Sometimes students have a difficult time and this hinders their comprehension. By making connections, students will improve their understanding of the content we are learning.

The Egypt Game book will help students be able to bring their imagination to life!

They will use their knowledge they have gained from our Ancient Egypt unit in Social Studies and make more connections. This will bring history to life for my students and keep them sitting on the edge of their seat to learn more about this time in history.
