My Students

Our class is like a classic "Stone Soup" because each person adds such an important, different ingredient to our school family! Our school is a kindergarten through fifth grade school in a suburb of Detroit. It is the largest elementary school in our public school district.

We speak over 100 languages in our district and celebrate diversity every single day!

Our neighborhood is comprised of students living in nearby houses and many apartments. We are in the process of consolidating high schools and other school buildings, so we are in a state of transition.

My Project

My class has diverse learning needs because we are an ELL--English Language Learning classroom. This means much instruction occurs in small groups. My students often would benefit from hearing instruction of topics more than once or in a different modality to meet the different learning styles of children. BrainPOP Jr. would be an OUTSTANDING online access point, but it is expensive. Our school does not offer funding for this program.

BrainPOP Jr.

is an online resource with animated movies, interactive quizzes, learning games, and other educational activities. It cultivates critical thinking skills and encourages students to ask questions about Science, Social Studies, Reading & Writing, Health, Math, and Arts & Technology. It has a vocabulary element that will help my ELL learners (over half of our class).

It would be wonderful for my students to have a resource that can be used individually, in small teams, or as a whole-class learning settings. BrainPOP Jr. is mapped to the Common Core and other academic standards.
