My Students

My students are always eager to learn. Some are English Language Learners. Most of my students love to learn with technology in the classroom. However, they lack technology at home.

During this difficult time, my students are having difficulty completing their work without technology.

Therefore, it's difficult for them to work online on lessons that I provide for them. Many depend on worksheet packets and whatever books they have at home. Although they are having a difficult time with schools that are closed, my students are always eager to learn.

My Project

Since I haven't been in the classroom with my students for quite a while, I want them to be successful with their learning during this time of school closure. It is so imperative that they learn as much as possible before they move onto the next grade. The markers will be used during art. They need art materials to help them with creativity. The spiral writing journals will be used for writing answers on different digital learning subjects. They will also be used for brainstorming ideas, taking notes and writing paragraphs.
