My Students

My school is a Title I school with many students of poverty in the free and reduced-price lunch program. Because of this, many of them do not have the resources at home they need to be successful readers.

No matter their backgrounds, I have wonderful students who are eager to learn.

My students have a wide range of ability levels and learning styles. Because of this, they need a variety of different materials to meet their unique needs. They are all futuristic, real-world thinkers who need current materials to support their growth!

My Project

Often students don't understand how skills translate to their everyday lives, but the materials in this project will help them make that connection and support engagement! We need materials that are not only fun for students, but show them that games help them learn as well. They will learn that the skills they learn in reading and writing will also help them with things in life they enjoy and want to be good at.

My students work hard and deserve rewards as well.

The materials in this project will be used to help my students learn while also providing an avenue for reward. They'll be having fun and won't even realize that they're making inferences, solving problems, and determining solutions all at the same time!
