This is a wonderful group of 2nd graders. We are very active, silly, and curious! Our interests include the sports of baseball, football, basketball, soccer, and gymnastics, dancing, singing, drawing, playing the ukulele and piano, fishing and camping, playing legos, video games, and watching YouTube videos for learning and fun!
We love doing things with our hands and especially getting messy with science!
This fall we explored the states of matter with different activities and experiments. We made official science notebooks--I am so proud of how meticulously and diligently students worked to record their learning. This coming semester we will begin learning all about the earth, moon, and sun.
We have a sizable portion of our class of 24 students who really struggle to master the regular math concepts we are learning. Fortunately, we have a fantastic T.A. who comes in to support these students everyday . . . but she has no good space to work with them!
With a kidney table, we will be able to provide direct feedback and support to 4-6 students at a time which will not only accelerate their mastery of math content but also improve their learning experience by eliminating the frustration of not having a conducive work space.
With a good kidney table, I will be able to pull small groups for more effective instruction in all the other subject areas too!
