My Students

My students are great and are willing to do so much in my class. As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, I work with students who are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. To help them with the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences. They love to draw and create things to help them remember what they have learned or are going to learn.

My students love to draw and the use of color helps them remember most of the concepts we go over in class.

My students create the visuals also, because we do not have constant access to computers/laptops. I do my best with the supplies we have in science class but it's the experiences that make a difference. I'm hoping to make more experiences worth remembering.

My Project

The paper, markers and color pencils will be used for creating the anchor charts and word wall of science words and examples. For example, I have my students create posters for the moving of Earth's plates and what is created by the movement such as pictures of faults, mountains, and divergent plains.

Then for my Biology students that are 8th graders, they create compare and contrast poster plus make flowers out of the colored paper and label the parts of the flower.

Then they have to write about how the flower moves food and water through these parts. It is awesome and helps the students to understand what makes a flower and that there are different types of flowers. That is when I can have a conversation about survival with the variety and differences of plants and animals.
