Our students are very active and hard working from the moment they walk into the classrooms until it is time to go home. Their enthusiasm for learning is apparent when walking down the halls. Our students come from various backgrounds, mostly low income. Teaching children from across the globe who speak little to no English is a challenge, but the one thing we all have in common is that we're excited about learning.
I have 24 beautiful children in 1st Grade who come from different parts of the United States, Central and South America.
As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students struggle with learning how to read and write in English.
Independent learning is so important. As a teacher I want each of my students to become problem solvers and critical thinkers so that they can achieve academic and personal success.
These problem solving journals will help my students practice critical thinking skills during their independent learning centers!
Students will be able to work at their own pace during their independent learning centers in order to solve real world STEM based problems while incorporating literacy.
These journals are a standards based instructional resource that when used correctly can be a game changer in making all the difference in my students academic achievements.
