My Students

The school I work at is a K-8 charter school and is located in one of the highest poverty zip codes in the state. Our middle school students are driven, intelligent and genuinely happy. They are grateful for the opportunity to attend our school and the opportunity to learn. Our school uses project based learning in conjunction with International Baccalaureate curriculum to encourage excitement and individual ownership in our school's core subjects; Math, Science, History, English, Spanish and Global Perspectives.

My Project

My students need a variety of colors to help bring their visions to life. In my English class we often create poster or drawings to enhance our final projects, whether those are final drafts of poems they've written, character analysis posters, or book reports. My students work hard on these projects but are often limited by the colors available. I also have a hard time watching students try to color people/characters when I don't have colors available to truly depict the multi-cultural focus of our school.

Every Wednesday in our classroom students complete a page in an interactive notebook which focuses on Greek and Latin roots.

Students color an image that symbolizes the meaning of the root. In an interactive way students also fill out words with their definitions to help them see the root in action. Learning these roots helps my students to decode any new word they come across.
