My Students

While many people choose to visit our beautiful area for the history, beaches, and amusements, our school is in an urban area. As a Title I school, we are over 44% English Language Learners (ELL), with all of our students receiving free breakfast and lunch and 11% of our children identifying as homeless. Many students are new to our country or our area and about 1/3 move during the school year. Though some of our students face daunting challenges, they are eager to learn, grow, and experiment.

Our students are funny, bright, imaginative, and motivated.

Many are raised in single-parent homes and deal with housing crises due to high rental rates and seasonal shortages. Though we all live within minutes of the beach, many have never been on a boat. Though many experience hardships of different kinds, they are excited to learn and eager to grow in confidence in their ability to become star students!

My goal is to help increase my students' wonder and engagement in the world around them by creating strong, interesting, thoughtful lessons, and projects which make learning exciting! As their first year in public school, I am honored to share the beginning of their journey!

My Project

My students do many different things over the summer. Some will go to camp and many will stay at home with a parent, older sibling or relative. Keeping up on our important kindergarten skills is incredibly helpful for entering into first grade at the end of August. Giving parents hands-on activities to do over the summer helps support what students have learned over the school year.

Fun and interactive workbooks and artistic WikkiStix will make for a developmentally appropriate and interesting way to fight against the summer slide!

As our students enter 1st grade, they are expected to know how to add and subtract between 0-10 and read simple consonant, vowel, consonant words in sentences. Practicing these skills over the summer will help our students feel successful and confident to begin the school year!

WikkiStix are a fantastic, multi-use material students can use over and over to create two dimensional and 3 dimensional designs, structures, animals, characters and more. They are great for fostering imagination and building confidence in the artistic process!

Thank you for helping to make this a great summer!
