My Students

My third graders are sweet, funny, and have a true love of learning. I teach in a general ed classroom and have 23 students. In my general ed classroom are also included students with IEPs and an emotional disability.

My students love learning with manipulatives and hands-on activities not only in math and science, but also in reading!

We are quite a team and help each other out a LOT. My students know that each of us have our own needs and structures that help us succeed.

My Project

My students need hands-on materials like wikki stix, magnetic letters, alphabet stamps and stamp pads, vocabulary match up sets, word building tiles, and letter beads for our word work station because they are so important in their growth as readers. Word work can help them become better readers, spellers, and writers.

Being hands-on is especially important in the classroom because it allows my students to engage in kinesthetic learning.

This gives them the chance to use their hands and sense of touch to learn rather than just listening to me teach or seeing it on a worksheet. Depending on my students' developmental stages, they might use this time to focus on letters and their sounds, read and spell words, or work on word meanings. At the same time, they have time to explore sight words.
