My students are creative, caring, empathetic learners, and are eager to learn through play. I come into work each day looking forward to seeing what they will come up with. My goal is to give students more opportunities to learn through play.
My students come from an urban area with a high level of poverty.
They range in ages 4-6 years old, and are a variety of ethnicities such as Hispanic, African American, Caucasian, Indian, and Asian. Students come to school with varying ability levels.
Lately I have been having students complain about not being able to see the illustrations in our trade books. I’ve also wished that I had the opportunity to model math problems in front of them, but projected so all can see. When I have shown them a math problem using counters I had to improvise many times just by drawing them instead of using the hands-on items. I’ve also had a crowd of students surrounding me and getting into each other’s personal space. Well, to avoid this I would like to provide my classroom camera for all to see closely!
