Students at my school are being presented an opportunity to attend a school of choice as opposed to automatically being enrolled in their neighborhood school. Students attend my school because they want to have opportunities they would not otherwise have available. These opportunities include access to and training on the latest technologies to help them become ready to compete in the global marketplace.
My students want access to the best opportunities and to be prepared for a successful future upon graduation.
Oklahoma has been the last in education for some time, but my students deserve to be a part of the upward climb. My students are keenly aware they have been short-changed for some time by Oklahoma's education system. To their credit, they are demanding change, and they are grasping at all the rings.
Students learn when the learning is made fun. Story Cubes are a great way for us to set up writing centers and help students be more creative in their writing. Shut the Box and Hot Potato are games which can help with team building and are fun as well. All the games on this list can be used both in the classroom and in the lunch room when the weather turns cold and damp, preventing us from going outside. These are some fantastic boredom busters! Help my students continue to learn without realizing that is what is happening. Thank you!
