I serve as an Exceptional Child Instructor in a self-contained classroom in rural North Carolina. Having already worked with using BrainPOP in the classroom, I know the high quality technologically based learning games, activities, and short animated movies that engage and appeal to young students. The topics include science, math, engineering, social studies, art, music , health, technology, and language arts. All of their materials are aligned to Common Core and state standards. One example from earlier in the year is that we accessed the lessons on trees, forests, and plants. We studied a variety of seeds, watched plants grow from seeds, discussed life cycles of plants, compared and contrasted plants and vegetables, made predictions and took observation data. Access to BrainPOP would allow me to present such topics, generate discussions, allow for interaction with technology, and foster curiosity. As mentioned as an example above, I complete our lessons with hands-on activities; real physical examples, making predictions, data collection, drawing conclusions, applying skills to projects or activities. Because the needs of my students vary between medical, academic, and intellectual disabilities, BrainPOP jr. would be developmentally appropriate and allow them to learn about subjects same age peers are learning in their general education settings. This helps support their academic progress but also prepares them to understand broader ideas, concepts, and understanding of the world as well. Please consider supporting our classroom learning!
