My Students

"Whoa! Look at that!" and "This is so awesome!" are just two of many phrases I hear when working with my students on various projects and activities. My students have a thirst for knowledge, and unfortunately at school, it is often the only time they get to explore learning. Our school houses Pre-K to 6th grade and all the teachers do what is necessary to help each student. Our goal is to prepare our students not only for high school and college, but to prepare them for the real world.

My class is made up of 24 amazing 4th graders, all from very different households and backgrounds.

Every day I strive to ensure that my students have all that they need in order to thrive in my classroom. Our school offers free breakfast and lunch, as well as a free snack. We also offer free after school mentoring where students can get help with homework and learn enrichment activities such as sewing, archery, cooking, etc. Our school does as much as we possibly can to help our students so that they can be successful in whatever they choose to do.

My Project

One of the big skills we focus on in the spring is figurative language. Similes, metaphors, oxymorons, palindromes, anagrams, idioms, and proverbs are just a few of the types of figurative language we learn about.

We don't need to be punished, but we do need the book Punished!

We are needing the book Punished! which is packed with palindromes, anagrams, and oxymorons. While this doesn't cover all of the figurative language, it is an excellent introduction to figurative language. We would be able to read this book and identify figurative language in literature, as well as working on comprehension and understanding skills. We would be able to follow this book up by studying other types of figurative language and their presence in literature.
