My Students

Every morning I walk into my classroom and we start the day with morning week to get their brains ready. Later on in the period , we start our activities in a kinesthetic way. The students are taught through modeling.

I work in the heart of Little Village in Chicago, Illinois.

My students are diverse learners and learn with visual and hands-on activities. They love to interact with each other and use many different manipulatives and explore math in a visual way. Math is a struggle for them, but it is my goal to make math enjoyable for them. That happens by switching activities, using graphic organizers, and relating math to their lives. My students are wonderful students and a joy to be working with.

My Project

All of my diverse learners are kinesthetic and learn visually. Currently, I have a white board, but they would greatly benefit from a document camera. From the document camera, I could display worksheets on the wall and do the worksheet with them. I can do the Gradual Release of Responsibility teaching strategy. This strategy is a wonderful tool for me to use for my students. I can model for the students and even have some of them come up and write on the worksheet underneath the document camera. My students will become more involved in the classroom and learn to enjoy math.

The document camera will help the students visualize what they are learning.

It will also allow them to participate more in the classroom. The students are always excited when new technology is in the classroom because it brings them into the 21st century.
