My Students

My students are identified for the Gifted and Talented program. This program is called SAIL. It stands for Students Actively Involved in Learning! My students were tested in second grade to see if they qualified to take the gifted class that I teach. They come to my class once a week for enrichment and gifted services. They are taught language arts, math, science and social studies. We are a project based learning classroom which means we do research and projects on a regular basis.

My Project

I am asking for picnic tables for my students to work outside in their school garden. Our class is reading a novel called "Seedfolks." We would love to read our novels outside and work on our lessons outside of our classroom. Students will be able to write their journal responses about their novels at the picnic tables. We will also observe our garden plants and insects while we are sitting at the tables. We would love to have four tables to work on outside in the fresh air. The tables will provide us with a work space free of noise. We can sit and read in the garden and also work on other subjects while sitting at the tables. Please help up get four tables for outside. Thank you!
