My Students

I am a teacher in a Title I school, where nearly 70 percent of our students qualify for free and/or reduced lunch based on their socioeconomic status. Many of the students in my classes come from single-parent households. After many conversations with students and parents, I have learned that television and video games have become the normal evening routine. I want to fuel a different fire.

I have smart, capable and eager learners.

I want to challenge my students, spark their curiosity and give them opportunities to build and create. I am hopeful this excitement during the day will carry over into the evening and enrich change family interactions. I realize the lack of materials at home will continue to be limited, but I know my students are resourceful.

My Project

During my math rotations, one station is math games. These games are an excellent way for the students to practice skills while having fun. Lately, I've seen my students gravitate to the few logic games and the one building activity I have available. I am excited to foster the ingenuity these experiences provide.

I want to supply my students with additional STEM activities as choices to explore hands-on learning.

I believe that all students need this kinesthetic learning, not just early finishers. By providing additional brain-building activities, I hope to keep the love of learning alive.

Two of the games I am most excited about are the "Square-Up" game and the KEVA blocks. The "Square-Up" game is a visual thinking game, providing the students with a fast-paced, problem solving experience. The KEVA's blocks will supply the students with endless creative building opportunities. I look forward to the excitement of my students when I introduce each of the activities into our centers.
