My Students

A picture is worth a thousand words...author unknown.

Our school is nestled on a small hill in Eastern Kentucky.

I work with students from kindergarten through the second grade who arrive to school with a smile on their face despite the fact they have to catch the bus before dawn. They all take proud in their accomplishments and are eager to learn.

My Project

Some students need differentiated instruction and that’s where this project comes in. Students need to be able to get up and move for learning to take place and what better way to get them up moving but with videos found on the Internet. The TV would be used to view educational videos to reinforce basic skills and teach new concepts like The Magic School Bus, School House Rock, ABC Rap, and Number Rock just to name a few.

The key to closing educational gaps is providing students with differentiated instruction that addresses their learning style.

By supporting this project you will allow my students an opportunity to view educational video that can be found on the Internet which will get them up moving and singing; while, they are working on specific skill they have not mastered.
