My students are young, gifted, talented! A majority of my students qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. About half of them are also English Language Learners. My students know that learning is their job and their right.
I have an amazing, diverse class of second graders.
Like many seven- and eight-year-olds, they learn visually and are most engaged when the learning is also hands-on. This year engagement has been challenging. But the majority remain happy to be learning, and remain hopeful that we will return to class soon.
What that noise coming from my classroom? That's the sound of kiddos laughing, explaining, and asking questions for clarification. Are we talkative? Why Yes! Welcome to my 2nd-grade classroom!
Like any other year, a classroom will have a variety of students with different educational needs. English Language Learners, exceptional, learners, and advanced learners need acitivites that support their learning paths. This year, distance learning has limited the resources we are able to access.
Providing students with engaging online activities helps students practice essential skills.
Alternate activities not only reinforces whole class instruction, but also allows opportunity for collaboration, differentiation, and equity.
TPT resources help me provide different activities according to the need of individual students. It helps me supplement activites that I cannot access in an online environment.
