My Students

"Children want the same things we want. To laugh, to be challenged, to be entertained, and delighted." ~ Dr. Seuss I want to be able to use more than pencil and paper to teach my students. Children like to have fun, children want to learn why not combine the two from time to time?

A lot of my students are economically disadvantaged and with that, statistically comes students that are below level.

We work very hard at my school to get students where they need to be with before school tutoring and after school tutoring. Some students are at school from 8:00 am to 6:30 pm working and learning their little hearts out. Being at a title one school that is 82% economically disadvantaged means all these children only get a chance to learn and get caught up when they are here at school. When some of my students go home the last thing they have on their minds is reading and learning because they have so many other things going on. If they have fun learning at school then I think they will want to carry the love of learning home as much as they can.

My Project

Every student, everyday! That's our motto and I could not agree more with it. As I said, we work VERY hard to get our students where they need to be, every single one of them. Learning can be exhausting for some students, it does not come easy and I would love to be able to throw in fun literacy games as an intervention. As hard and long as some of my students work I believe they deserve to play a game but to work on reading comprehension skills as well.

If they see that learning can be fun, they will try harder at it and we can get them on level!

Knowing that they have access to games they can play while they are here but also learn as well will make my classroom a desirable place for those that struggle.
