It's been proven that students learn better when they're able to be taught in smaller groups. You can focus more on the individual needs of a student far more when there are only 4-6 students in front of you, as opposed to 25. Unfortunately, when you are teaching to a small group, the other 20 students need to be progressing their learning as well. Worksheets can only go so far before they get tiring and by 5th grade, some of the learning games, such as those involving dice or playing cards, become too "childish" for the students. Fortunately, students are always excited to go on computers to access the wealth of resources on there. Every year of teaching, I've utilized technology as a learning center, providing students with an opportunity to do self-directed learning. Websites such as Zearn or Khan Academy allow me to pick specific skills in math to target areas of growth for students; other sites like Reading A-to-Z allows me to assign texts that target the students' reading levels, allowing them to read stories that are adjusted for their reading ability. Technology, such as the projector and document camera, allows for more creative teaching. Instead of having to draw a place value chart or put up a plot map, I can simply project one onto the board, allowing more freedom to modify as needed. I remember my first year of teaching, before I was given a projector, I would walk around holding up my computer in order for students to see and hear. These two items are so crucial to teaching--I hope that you can help me obtain them!
