I am a fifth grade teacher in South Carolina. My class includes students with learning disabilities, autism, ADHD, gifted and talented, and English Language learners. The reading level of my students span from late second grade to eighth grade, and come to me with a wide variety of life experiences. Approximately half of my students receive free or reduced price lunch.
I try to make learning so much fun that students can't wait to come to school each day!
I incorporate flexible seating, hands-on lessons, conversations and technology in my lessons. My students have the ability to move about the room as needed to best suit the lesson and activity for each subject.
By using the informational texts on Oceans, students will develop research skills in a self-directed study. They will use books such as Extreme Planet to learn about volcanoes and earthquakes and how they affect the ocean. Also, they will read Oceans (Ecosystem) to learn about life in the ocean. The students will also study how weathering and erosion affect the oceans.
Students will read informational books about oceans, then share the knowledge in an idea circle.
They will find important information to share with their classmates and create a deeper understanding of the content by discussing and asking questions of each other.
