Teaching 6th grade students is an adventure every single day!
My students are avid readers, and are proud to show their creativity through exciting projects.
My school is a K-12 campus in a Title 1 neighborhood. We have a large percentage of students receiving free or reduced price lunch.
I am trying to build an inviting classroom environment where the students can display various ideas in formats they feel helps them learn. I feel that when students are given a choice in some aspects of their education, they will exceed my high expectations and produce high quality creative projects that they are proud to take ownership of. With 230 students competing for wall or window display space, the competition is healthy!
These individual dry erase boards will enhance the engaging and creative classroom environment that I strive to provide for my students.
My classroom is a place that my students really enjoy-I try to give them the independence to create their own projects when it comes to reading.
Sometimes it is hard to get them to just sit and read. I feel when students are given the opportunity to plan their own learning path, they take ownership of their work and strive to complete the best project they can, ultimately exceeding my high expectations. Students love when their work gets displayed around the room, and the competition between the 230 learners is healthy!
These dry erase boards and supplies will help students plan, collaborate, and ultimately create a variety of finished products relating to their independent novel studies. These boards can also be used for fun vocabulary games and will be a versatile product that helps my students explore their creativity.
