My Students

My students for the 2018 - 2019 and upcoming 2019 - 2020 school year are and will be a group of fifth graders who are very energetic and eager to learn and have fun. They all attend a Title I school in a rural Arizona farming community.

The majority of our students come from low income, single family homes or are being raised by their grandparents.

At our school, 100% of the students qualify for free breakfast and lunch. Despite the challenges of poverty, they arrive at school eager and ready for the day's lessons and projects. They also love to get up and be active while learning.

My Project

Escape rooms are all the rage nowadays. With all the different ideas for escape rooms and cracking the code games, this project is for materials to help me make such activities for my students to review math and ELA concepts with. If you are unfamiliar with the term "Escape Room" or "Cracking the Code", the easiest way to explain them is as a scavenger hunt with clues. The goal is to solve all the clues in order in the time allotted and "Escape The Room".

These games get the students out of their seats, build team working skills, using the concepts they have already learned, and using their minds to solve the riddles that tell them where the next set of clues will be found.

I found a store on Teachers Pay Teachers that has several of these games geared towards students who have learned the concept and are ready for a review. We've done one escape room already and the students loved it. They've asked if we can do one a week and I told them that as long as they focus, we would try and do one every Thursday.

The 4.75 x 6.5 envelopes will be used to hold the small 'clue' cards in the Cracking The Code game. The 6x9 envelopes will be used to hold the 'clue' envelopes which will be holding the 'clue' cards mentioned above. Please help my students "Crack The Code". The legal sized envelopes are for my students to create accordion style book reports once we finish a novel study as a class; we are currently reading "Island of the Blue Dolphins" by Scott O'Dell.

Please help my students get enveloped in their learning.
