My students need leveled learning centers to facilitate meaningful experiences and help us to be successful with the new Common Core curriculum.
Yes! What are we going to learn next? This is awesome! These positive accolades and more are all too common in my classroom of super second graders! In preparation for the new Common Core curriculum, my project will make even more opportunities for hands on exploration and learning possible.
I am the lucky teacher of a wonderful 2nd grade, inclusion class, in Maryland.
We are very fortunate to be part of an extremely supportive school community that values innovative ideas, creativity, and learning for all students. My class is comprised of talented athletes, voracious readers, promising scientists, inspired politicians, the kindest of friends, and maybe even a future president. My class is also made of varying instructional levels, unique interests, and different learning styles. The students in my class are always eager to show their mastery of the day's objectives in a variety of ways. One of their favorites is through the use of hands on games and activities. I would be ecstatic to be able to provide them with ample activities and opportunities to demonstrate their understanding each and every day.
The learning games and centers I selected for my class are not only fun and engaging, but are also leveled to best meet their individual needs. In a class with four different instructional levels, it is imperative that activities can be easily adapted for all students. Each learning center that I chose is designed to provide extra practice for students that have not yet mastered certain skills, and opportunities for extension and enrichment for students who have. The learning centers also allow for students to increase their stamina working independently during guided reading and math groups. The activities are very similar to each other and once students understand how to play one game, they can easily apply those same rules and principles to the other games. Through the use of these games and activities, my students will practice their basic math facts, examine place value, match homophone pairs, decipher multiple meaning words, and cooperate with others in small groups and partners.
Dr. Seuss said, "You have brains in your heads.
Feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose". I am confident that by supporting my project, my students will use the brains in their heads to take advantage of each experience they encounter, the feet in their shoes to come to school each day open to learning, and that the lessons they learn this year will steer them into the bright direction of their future. Thank you for taking time to consider supporting my project!
