My students need laminating pouches, a magnetic spinner, a sensory bin and beads, Velcro dots, headphones, an echo dot, and art cart to create a more child centered classroom.
I teach in a low-income neighborhood school that was unfortunately in the Hurricane Harvey impact zone. Our community received over 50 inches of water in about a 24 hour period. Many of our students are English language learners which can be challenging. These students benefit from hands-on learning, which helps foster language acquisition and mathematics skills.
This year, before school started, Hurricane Harvey hit our area and water was in 80-90% of the homes in our town.
My children have very little to begin the school year with. I would like for them to have as normal of a school year as possible. I love teaching these children because they are eager to learn even with all the devastation, they have seen in their little lives.
This year has been like no other with the impact of Hurricane Harvey before the school year even started. When we came back to school, we were 3 weeks behind where we should have been and I have tried to "catch up" with every opportunity I get.
The materials I have chosen for this project will help create a more child-centered classroom through writing the room (using the Velcro dots and laminating paper to create write the room experiences), an art station to express their feeling, and a sensory bin for a "calm down" spot.
Additionally, the children will have access to Alexa (echo dot) to ask questions, use for spelling, check the weather and much more. I think she will be a great addition to our classroom! The headphones will be used for our existing kindles and computers to make the students experience with the devices more meaningful. I am excited about the learning that will go on as a result of this amazing project!
