Learning in our own way is one of the strategies we use to provide flexibility in our classroom. My co-teacher and I would like to provide the tools needed for students to succeed by providing an environment for students to learn to the best of their ability. My co-teacher and I would like to provide a safe, comfortable and homey environment that makes learning welcoming each and every day.
My fifth graders come from a diverse school community of about 600 students.
Together, we are all part of the largest elementary school in our district. These amazing fifth graders continue to inspire me with their desire to learn, and it is my job to find a way to make it.
After going to GYTO in Dallas, Texas, I have many awesome ideas rolling through my head! At the conference many of the sessions promoted diversity, classroom community and STEM. So with the items listed that is exactly what I plan to do. The Legos and stick-able lego plates will be multiple use. It will be used as a "break" spot for students that needs to calm down as well as a soft start morning choice. As students are building with the legos it will also be used as a STEM choice and they don't even know it! Also, we would like to create glow in the dark STEM activities to use at the beginning of the year to promote classroom community! These materials will also be able to be used at later transformations as well.
