My students are destined for great things. They enjoy a good challenge and different opportunities. They enjoy hands-on and innovative approaches to solving problems. These students do not have a lot of resources, but always do well with whatever they are given.
We are in a high poverty district, but we still challenge our students to compete across the nation.
Our students are gifted and talented with various needs and abilities. It is time to motivate them on a different level.
Students will return in August. They have been involved in a number of programs over the summer. Each student has gained new knowledge and experiences. The first week of school is designed to get to know my students.
We will create pop up books about what they have done over the summer to connect it with the inquiry part of science.
Students will use the file folders for cover books. They will cut slits of paper and glue various designs to create backgrounds for each page of their books. They will use the index cards to make captions and props to tell their story. They will highlight key vocabulary words that relate to the science and engineering practices. They will also use the notebooks to do journaling and vocabulary building.
Students will be allowed to work in groups with the responsibility of cleaning up their areas with the sanitizer and paper towels. We will practice communication skills and presenting their projects.
