My Students

Do you remember the old schools days where you were required to sit and listen? Well, I want my students to be up and engaged in hands-on learning activities that will excite and involve my students in different learning styles.

I'm a first grade teacher with 22 students.

There are a variety of different students with different learning styles. Many need to be up and engaged in kinesthetic learning activities. Not every child learns by paper and pencil activities. Teachers need to be able to tap into their children's multiple intelligence to be able to access their student's desire to learn. Latest research studies have shown that students need learn using multiple intelligence methods. "And there is now a massive amount of evidence from all realms of science that unless individuals take a very active role in what it is that they're studying, unless they learn to ask questions, to do things hands on, to essentially re-create things in their own mind and transform them as is needed, the ideas just disappear." Howard Gardner

My Project

Students need to be able to learn through multiple intelligences. I would like to provide my students with a variety of hands-on learning activities that engage their different intelligences. The resources I have chosen are center activities that allow them to learn through their different learning styles with hands-on activities. Resources will be listening centers, art materials like clay rollers, sand, tracing and rubbing tiles, science centers and a health center.

As teachers we have underfunded budgets and limited materials.

In order to reach each child and provide fun learning activities, quality teachers usually reach into their own pocket book to help augment their supply needs. I would like to provide the best, research based learning activities that help students learn in their own learning styles.
