My Students

GRIT...if you ask any one of my 5th graders what I hope they will learn this year, it is just that- GRIT. Grit is the ability to persevere when challenged, continue to try even after failing over and over, and embracing mistakes. These kids do that, and more, each and every day.

In our classroom, we don't let hard work stand in our way; we embrace it.

We know that making mistakes is part of our journey. These fabulous 5th graders come from diverse cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds, each facing numerous challenges each day. Yet, somehow they are able to leave everything else at the door and impress me every day.

I am so proud of these hard-working kids, I can't wait to see what creations, discoveries, and inventions are in store in for their future.

My Project

When you step inside my classrooms today, you won't see rows and rows of students lined up, sitting quietly, doing worksheets. This is not how my kids learn. My students come from a variety of cultures, backgrounds and come with many special abilities. Some of them have anxiety disorders, some are autistic, some have ADHD, some have ADD, some are English Language Learners, and some are average kiddos. What they all have in common is that they need learning to be fun and engaging. With the legos bot pieces, lego glasses, fidget toys, and black lights from this project, I will be able to get my kids moving and more engaged in their learning.

By turning boring worksheets into fun learning games I will be able to increase the level of engagement in my classroom and get all of my students even those that struggle most with attention, my ADHD students, excited about learning.

With the lego bots pieces, I will be able to create coding experiences to engage all learners. We will use the lego glasses to make learning how to find non-fiction text features more fun, and use the black lights to have engaging glow days where we we do all our work with highlighter and watch it glow. Lastly, the fidgets will help us get our wiggles out.

By adding these few simple tools to my classroom all learners will be engaged. They will be begging to do more and more work, simply because it is presented in a fun and different way. They will be learning and not even know it!

Can you help me make a difference in my school? Can you help me make learning fun for all my students, but most especially for my higher needs ADHD friends?
