My students are fun and energetic, and love authentic and hands-on experiences. This is the type of atmosphere that I strive to provide for my students every day. We love to dance and move and be hands-on with learning. My goal is that I will be able to provide each of my students with a meaningful and memorable experience in third grade. In order to do that, I need a classroom that has the materials my students need to learn.
Thanks to the donors here on Donors Choose, I have had the opportunity to receive some amazing professional development this school year! My biggest take away has been that learning can and should be fun! That may seem like an obvious statement, but when you are in the middle of preparing for standardized tests, and feeling the pressure of getting your students prepared, it is easy to forget. Testing puts so much pressure on kids at such a young age. It's time to take some of that pressure off and just let kids LEARN!
My goal is to turn engagement up to the max!
These supplies will allow me to transform my room into the ultimate Division Games experience! The kids will get to come in and learn their division facts through sports themed activities and games. They will compete in teams while working hands on with their math concepts. In previous years I have tried the games, and the kids love them! It really helps things "stick" when they are playing hands on. The only thing missing is the accessories that will help me give my students an even more memorable experience. It's time to get in the game! Thanks for helping me set the stage to engage!
