This particular page was initially designed to provide unique opportunities for those students in my class who crave, or may require, what our staff like to refer to as “qualitatively differentiated curriculum experiences”. Essentially, this page offers an alternative learning environment that focuses on basic skills, higher level thinking, inquiry, problem solving and creativity that correspond to the needs of my students. Whereas the program material in class may differ in depth, pace, and complexity according to my students, the materials on this page can be used by others simply as a challenge and is open to anyone who find it enjoyable.

Calling All Readers!
Most of us have had "Book Chats" before, or have been in a Book Club where you and some of your friends decide to all read the same book together. Then you make time to discuss different chapters in that book as all of you continue to read through it. Well now we can do this using our website!

 Located in the message board section is The Reading Room. In this section, some of the fourth and fifth grade students and myself (along with some past students) will examine a number of books throughout the school year. Be sure to check out our latest book and perhaps read along with us!

About these webquests
The webquests on this page are a little different. They may be attempted by anyone who enjoys a challenge- with some provisions! These projects can be time-consuming and therefore should only be attempted by students who are keeping up with their work in class. A student's classwork is priority. Additionally, if you are not in my class, you should check with your teacher first for the appropriateness of the assignment and whether it can be applied as extra credit towards your grade.
Did You Notice? . . . .
