My Students

If I could describe my classroom in five words, they would be authentic, rigorous, supportive, engaging, and community. Students in my class have ownership of their own learning and a lot of what goes on happens naturally. Because of the passion I have for learning and my strong desire to share it with my students, my class is definitely engaging.

Taking time to know my students well, not just as learners, but also a people has helped to create a real sense of belonging in our shared space.

My Project

I would like to have a "busy bee" station on hand, so when my students ask me "what to do next" I can simply say "Be Busy" and they know what to do. I will be using the IRIS 10 Drawer to set up a "busy bee" area to engage fast finishers. It will contain a "hive" of activity to keep my students engaged and motivated.

The IRIS 12 pack storage boxes and Astrobright colored paper will be toolkits to provide my students with hands-on applications of key mathematical skills.

These kits will be used in my small groups to build and apply math concepts. These kits will appeal to visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners because students are provided a visual , yet concrete way to "build" and apply major math concepts.
