My Students

The students in my class attend an urban school district with limited financial resources. Most of the students receive​ free or reduced-price lunch. Many of them have experienced crime in their lives and find it difficult to come to school. They have a range of learning abilities and come from diverse backgrounds. The typical student in my class need activities that promote unity and teamwork. My students need ways to communicate with others in fun and engaging ways.

My students deserve an opportunity to interact and thrive in a STEM-driven classroom that supports and promotes 21st century standards with needed resources.

There continues to be a slide in the school's budget, so any chance to provide resources for my students is slim to none. My students need resources to address a variety of deficiencies in order to meet grade level expectations.

My Project

Students in my class are below grade level readers. They do well with hands-on learning. By completing hands-on interactive notebooks, my students will engage with learning and improve reading skills. They will have the opportunity to use the TPT reading bundle activities to connect with their textbook stories, they will create foldable to demonstrate mastery and use the graphic organizers to map their thought processes.

Taking the time to engage with the text through a variety of activities will allow students to personalize instruction and create meaningful learning products to make them accountable.

Students will enjoy personalizing their interactive notebooks and making it in their style while learning concepts from cause and effect to problem and solution to story theme. Reading is a subject they will use for the rest of their lives. We should make learning reading more enjoyable. Data shows that students' scores on tests can drastically improve by implementing interactive notebooks into their learning. Thank you for helping to show my students learning can be fun and meaningful.
