My students need black lights, glow in the dark necklaces, and games so we can create a Glow Day room transformation where the students can master academic concepts in an amazing way that they won't forget!
Our school is located in a lower-to-middle class neighborhood, and most of the five hundred plus students are able to walk or ride their bikes. There are several after-school programs available to enrich student lives. Our school is in the process of becoming an integrated arts academy, which is a very exciting time that will allow children to learn in a variety of ways. By giving the students a variety of ways of learning, they are able to express themselves, their creativity, and learn in the best way that works for them!
Within my first few years of teaching I have continued my learning through going to professional development opportunities like the Ron Clark Academy, Get Your Teach On, and reading books written by amazing educators about how I can better engage students and how to make learning authentic for all my students.
Room transformations is one of the ways I have excited and made mastering concepts in math and language arts engaging, exciting and authentic!
My students work hard to learn and practice difficult third grade skills and it is my job to make their learning engaging and meaningful. Room transformations is one way that we celebrate their learning.
A room transformation a always a surprise and the students faces are simply priceless! Sometimes rooms transformations, like the Glow Games will have students play games with a academic twist in order to show their mastery of their learning!
