My Students

I work in a primarily Title I school (about 85%) with a high second-language learner population. Through engaging lessons and interactive activities, my students are highly motivated to work hard and learn.

Last year was a challenge with learning remotely, then transitioning to hybrid, and ultimately returning to in-person learning 4 days a week, but we came together as a "second family" to ensure students succeeded.

While some students are going to be facing learning loss from a year and a half of less than ideal academics, I am looking forward to being back in person with my students in order to hopefully "bring them all back up to speed."

My Project

Bubble Fidgets are the newest craze and whenever I can use something that motivates kids, I'm on board! I plan to use these for activities for the 100th day of school which is on February 1st.

I KNOW the kids will be engaged while they "Roll the Dice to 100" using these fidgets!

Normally, I would use these with partners and only need to purchase half a class set, but due to COVID, I thought it would be more prudent to purchase a whole class set and have each student work with their own fidget.

While deciding what to do with these fidgets, I realized the possibilities are endless - we can use them to add, subtract, multiply and even with language arts!

I'm also purchasing some light-up styrofoam wands as another motivational tool. Students "level up" on our "Super Improver Wall" and one of the rewards for leveling up is a fiber optic wand that they use when they raise their hand. Unfortunately, they are expensive and the kids have destroyed several. These styrofoam wants will still thrill them with their exciting colors, but will be a little sturdier.

Finally, I am also purchasing some Ticonderoga pencils (the best pencils ever) because we can never have enough pencils and some velcro to attach name tags to student desks.
