Kindergarten and First Grade with Miss Cruz

      I am looking forward to an exciting year of learning with my kindergarten and first grade students. We are the Super Stars of Room 5. I chose this theme because my students will be able to showcase their learning with a variety of recordings. They will use photo, audio, video, and other tools to be movie stars and rock stars! In addition to using technology, they will use other aspects of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics), including CGI (Cognitive Guided Learning for math), Imagination Machine Assemblies, Science Olympiad tools and science education with dash robots and drones, to enhance their learning. They will be stellar scholars who will reach for the stars! 
      As part of the AVID (Advancement Via Individual Detrmination) Program we have at San Marino, we emphasize college and career readiness. Each classroom “adopts” a university to learn about and be their university. Ours is Portland State University!
