My Students

The student in which I serve come from a very impoverished community. However, they are resilient in the fact that they comes to school every day willing to work hard. Our school has gone through transition as it relates to funding. Despite some of the challenges they face in their homes due to the recent hurricane we also lack the resources in which can help them to be 21st century learners. Our school needs more technology so that we can help all the kids.

My Project

These materials will help my classroom workstations more engaging and exciting. My students like to be as interactive as possible ans I have learned that students need to be introduced to different types of learning in the classroom. The PowerPens are my favorite. My students have already used them before, from another teacher, and they absolutely loved them. I promised them I would make an effort to get my own set for the class so they can use them on a daily basis. The pens offer a different way for my students to check there work that is both more engaging and fun.

I also value workstations that spiral lots of math content, such as adding, subtracting, multiplying and division, that students will need throughout their lives.

Workstations are becoming a norm in elementary classroom and I'm excited for my students to become more involved with them especially after losing so much due to Hurricane Harvey hitting our area.
