Help me give my students books for researching on first-hand extreme weather accounts with I Survived books, along with gloves and masks to play doctor for text feature surgery in reading and distributive doctor in math for STEM.
I'm fortunate to be part of a school that strives for excellence. We meet students' needs with rigorous teaching strategies, and we expect only the best from our students.
My school is proud to be a Leader in Me school that works on taking the 7 habits of author Steven Covey, making them age-appropriate, and working them into our school campus so that students begin to see their campus as a way to show leadership.
Leader in Me is not a curriculum, but rather a way of doing life on the school campus through awareness of how we learn and grow, and how we speak and treat one another.
Students learn the habit of solving conflicts, and then they become conflict managers. This is just one way the Leader in Me program looks on our campus. Students take the 7 Habits that are taught to them and begin to think of ways they can take ownership of their campus through leadership. Whether it's a 5th grader helping a 1st grader to read, students setting goals and overcoming academic obstacles, or students seeing a need to clean their campus, these are all ways that the 7 Habits teach students to lead.
I am requesting books for some informational research projects to do with our curriculums' units. The I Survived books are great with our reading unit on writing first hand accounts on extreme weathers. For example, the I Survived books will be used by students to take home, read, research, complete a book report cereal box, and then present to classmates. Students enjoyed this last year, and even dressed up as their chosen story character. The requested bowls will be used on a multiplication celebration day where students will celebrate their learned multiplication facts.This day will provide excitement and parents will be invited to attend. The requested kids masks and gloves are for when we do our text feature surgery afternoon to review for testing as well as when we play distributive doctor practicing the math skill of distributive property. This is a fun, hands-on activity reinforcing the reading strategies and standards we went over in the mornings readings' lessons as well as math. This is a STEM related project, incorporating some real-world problems of the career of a doctor doing surgery and putting things back together. Students wearing the masks and gloves to play doctor while reinforcing math and reading skills.
