My Students

At my International Baccalaureate school (PYP) my students are inquirers, thinkers, and active learners. They wonder about their environment and find challenges exciting. Students understand what a growth mindset means. Together they problem solve issues and come up with creative solutions.

I'm aware that my students' ability to focus and pay attention increases when we do hands-on activities.

We have many projects throughout the year that require working with partners or in teams. Alternative seating options and manipulatives increase student inquiry. Students can use all of their senses to learn.

My Project

The literature books that I have requested will be used as springboards for art and math. Using characters in the stories, students can create their own math word problems. For example, 2 bad ants each had 4 chips that they carried back to the nest. How many total chips did the ants carry? Also, Chris Van Allsburg books are great examples to teach art techniques such as light/dark, perspective, and shadowing.

The math materials help take abstract concepts and turn them into tangible concepts.

Also, playing math games increases interest in math. By using the kinetic sand, students can physically trace equations in the sand. This will help kinesthetic learners make better brain connections.
