Hello, I am Mrs.Banta. I graduated from University of Northern Colorado with a Masters in Education and have been working with students for over 30 years beginning with tutoring in high school. My professional passion is to make learning fun and engaging for my students. I strongly believe in being positive and having a great relationship with my students. I love the learning adventure and sharing with each child that I teach. I have lived in and traveled in many other countries including: El Salvador, Japan, Italy, South Africa, Israel, Belize, Denmark and The Republic of Congo. I also speak three other languages: Spanish, French and Danish. My goal is to make sure that your student enjoys learning about the world around him/her, learns to ask good questions, and most importantly stays curious. When I am not teaching, my passions include: environmental issues, photography, hanging out with my family ( I have 4 kids), traveling, hiking, sailing, scuba diving, and learning new things. Hope to see you in my classroom soon!

Supplies needed for this course

This video identifies the important learning resources/supplies and tangibles that students will need in order to move through the curriculum iwth ease.  These supplies and purposes are given.  While these are suggestions, alternatives may be chosen based on what will work for the Learning Coach or the student.

Curriculum Scope and Sequence

This Resource provides an overview of the entire curriculum.  Not only allowing for pacing, this overview also shows what objectives will be learned in each section. Objectives are written as "I can..." statements to help students understand the lesson goal and celebrate they will be able to do at the end of it.  Each section of the curriculum contains three videos (introduction, direct instruction, review).  These three components will work in tandem with provided worksheets, assignments, activities and journal pages to support student learning of each concept.  The curriculum contains 45 sections (each can take a week to complete) thus enough for an entire school year. 

Finally, the last extension lessons can be used at any point in the curriculum and may be repeated as often as desired to provide a solid foundation for second grade.  These extension lessons were created to support learning of skills that are often not taught in first grade but are essential foundational skills to future scientific adventures and proficiency in reading informational text and writing about informational text. 

This curriculum not only aligns with Common Core Standards and Colorado State Standards but also supports a wholistic approach to learning and encountering science.  It is the author's strongly held belief that scienctific inquiry is not only key to maintaining the joy of learning and discovery, but is also applicable to all other disciplines.  Once students learn to approach challenges, and academics using the scientific method, not only will they discover new things, they will already have a foundation of inquiry that supports all learning. 

Happy learning!
