My Students

My students and I are connected over a computer screen. When we left we said our good-byes for a few weeks and discussed how we were going to finish off the year. Like the students, I left behind a lot of my supplies thinking I would be back.

Now we are closed for the rest of the year, but the learning still goes on!

My Project

Right now the only way I can see my students is through online video conferencing. This makes teaching hard, especially when students struggle with motivation. My goal is to make these meetings fun, while still being able to teach. The book of riddles and Strange History stories is my way to get the student's attention and make our time together fun. The postcards will be written by me and I will be sending them to my students. My graduating students are moving on and this will be my chance to say goodbye and wish them well. The laminator will help me turn worksheets into dry erase sheets and allow me to use them over and over to teach my students. This helps me when I am completing multiple conference calls with different groups of students.

These materials will help me teach from far away.

The goal of this project is to connect with my students and keep teaching them.
