We are a PYP (Primary Years Programme) and MYP (Middle Years Programme) school. PYP and MYP are part of the IB (International Baccalaureate ®) Programme.
"IB aims to help students develop skills, knowledge, and attitudes they need to excel not only in their studies, but also in their personal growth."
All of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. My students' abilities range from well below grade level to a little above grade level in mathematics. It is important that I am meeting the needs of all of my learners, no matter their level.
We are asking for a buzzer set to play Jeopardy style games. Jeopardy is a classic classroom competition. It becomes fierce and it is always difficult to tell which team raises their hand first. This system will easily determine who buzzed first and who gets to answer the question (or state the question for the given answer).
The paddle whiteboards will allow students to show their work and hold their answers up if they buzz in first.
One side had a coordinate plane for questions that require graphing and the other side is blank.
Jeopardy is always a fun game, but it is not always fun running it as the teacher. The buzzer system and whiteboards will help ensure the game is run fairly and efficiently.
