My Students

My classroom is full of 80 fifth grade students throughout the day. I teach fifth-grade mathematics to all fifth graders that attend my school. My students love to learn and become very motivated with hands-on learning. My students come from a low-income, rural community, yet they continue to strive for improvement. Our school has a high migrant population and all of our students receive free lunch.

My classroom is full of eager learners who find value in learning.

They face daily life challenges at home, so I want to provide the best possible learning experience for them here at school! They come to school happy and ready to learn each and every day.

My Project

I am requesting four Breakout EDU kits to be shared with 4th and 5th-grade students. Breakout EDU allows the teacher to select the academic skills students must complete before "breaking out." The digital component of the Breakout EDU kit will allow me to select reading and math skills to review while students are completing the activity. Each kit comes with a box and locks for students to also physically unlock the box as activities are completed and clues or codes are given. The kits can be used multiple times, reviewing many different academic skills.

The Breakout EDU kit will allow my students an engaging and interactive learning experience while having fun!

I am also requesting colored paper to be used as scratch paper and pencils that students will use as they work through the Breakout EDU kit. These materials will ensure that all students have a similar experience when using the Breakout EDU kit.

Thank you in advance for considering my project and supporting my students learning.
