My Students

My second graders are very active, love learning and exploring. They love to create and build things from what they have in their table. They are very excited to participate in learning especially if it is new to them and as long as they were able to move their body.

What I notice about my students is that they love to read and listen to new stories.

They also love math as long as they have the chance to explore new things.

My Project

These project will help them develop their spatial skills which allow them to create what they see in their minds. These materials also will help them develop their creativity through their imagination by building, exploring, and problem solving. Next, it will help them learn to be persistent because in some worksheets, they don't continue if they are having a hard time. Then these projects will help with our art center, even with my math lessons with addition and subtraction. I can also used it for teaching language and guided reading through word work. I also have kids who are having hard time with writing so it will help them develop their fine motor skills. But with these materials, they will be very patient and persistent to finish what they started. Lastly, it will boost their confidence because it is a sense of accomplishment for them that they were able to create what they want.
