My students are a super enthusiastic inner city group that love independent learning. They thrive in the environment of discovery and self-managed small groups. Most of our day is spent working hard to sharpen skills, learn new concepts and cooperate to help each other learn!
We love fun and are always looking for new and innovative ways to support learning and exploration to foster thinking skills.
We are now on our journey of learning and we are eager to foster appropriate learning skills that will help us throughout our school careers.
My class works hard all week and they are rewarded at the end of the week with Friday Fun. Friday Fun is a time for them to make choices and to be creative. They can build, create and play games that foster social, as well as creative thinking skills.
Keva Planks, art supplies, and building games will not only reward them for their hard work during the week but also help foster their creative minds and encourage cooperation.
These items will also help to build our community of learners, through cooperation and creativity. I have many items already, however, I have found that this group loves to build and create so I am looking to receive items that are of interest to my class.
