I will be a first year teacher come August, and I am trying to prepare for my classroom as best as possible. Although I do not know my students yet, I am extremely familiar with the school. I was lucky enough to have student taught here, and will now be a fourth grade teacher.
The school I will be teaching at is a Title I school in Greensboro, NC.
Poverty affects a lot of my students, so it is crucial that my classroom will become a safe environment where students can come to learn and be loved. I want to make sure I have all necessary materials and supplies in order to help my students succeed as much as they can!
These academic games and activities will be extremely beneficial because my students will not only be able to increase specific skills, rather they will also be able to have fun while they are doing it. For example, Scrabble is a great game that can help students build their vocabulary, as well as increase their spelling. Scrabble is a great example because students have the opportunity to collaborate with their peers while they are partaking in this game.
The Buzzword Junior, Zingo Sight Words, Multiplication & Division Bingo, and other games and activities will have multiple uses such as great centers, activities for when students have finished their work, and even indoor recess activities!
All of these activities require students to collaborate with one another which can show students how to appropriately communicate with their peers.
