My Students

I have the great privilege of teaching fifth grade in a rural, small-town, K-12 school. I have 30 unique students in my class who come from a wide variety of backgrounds. Despite all of the differences in their backgrounds, when my students walk through the door of our classroom, they walk into a community; they walk into their community.

My classroom is a place where life happens: community happens, growth happens, friendships happen, and learning happens.

My students are always eager to learn and they love to be challenged. I am constantly trying to find new ways to engage their minds and their bodies in learning. In a small school district with somewhat limited funding, I am grateful for the chance to create opportunities for my students that they might not otherwise get.

My Project

According to BrainPOP's website: "In classrooms, on mobile devices, and at home, BrainPOP engages students through animated movies, learning games, interactive quizzes, primary source activities, and more. Our offerings are developed with a fundamental multimedia principle in mind: that information is more effectively processed when presented in words, pictures and sound than when presented in words alone (Mayer, 2005)."

BrainPOP is an incredible resource that can be used across all subject areas!

My students seem to be far more engaged in their learning when technology is involved, and I am constantly trying to come up with new ways to integrate elements of technology. BrainPOP is an incredibly easy-to-use website that will allow my students to learn more about Math, Science, ELA, Social Studies, Health, and Computer Science through a variety of videos, challenges, and games.

In Math, I will use BrainPOP to present the content to my students in a different way. In Science and Social Studies, I will use the videos and challenges to engage my students and interest them in the topics we are studying. We will use the technology resources to further our coding skills. I am constantly searching for videos to use to supplement what we are doing in class.

I often find myself frustrated because the videos that I find are poor quality, cheesy, or simply do not address the topic as well as they should. BrainPOP provides high-quality, elementary-aged videos that students LOVE. The opportunities are truly endless with BrainPOP, and I know that my students would benefit greatly from a classroom subscription!
