My Students

My students attend a K4 through eighth grade neighborhood school. It is located in the inner city of Milwaukee and serves an extremely culturally diverse population. Our school has a population of about 630 students. We offer all of our students rigorous academic programs. Recently, my school has been designated as a Green and Healthy School which means that we will continue our recycling efforts and will work toward becoming more environmentally friendly.

Compassionate, curious and eager is how I would describe my students.

Everyday, children enter my classroom ready to learn and face the day's challenges.

My Project

These games will allow every student a chance to enhance and strengthen the skills needed to think critically and persevere through a multitude of challenges. All of these games have been chosen with my students in mind-each game increases in the level of challenge as the children master the previous level.

With these new games, my students will be able to choose from a variety of critical thinking games that will help develop their reasoning skills and help develop a growth mindset!

The best part about it, is that these games embed Common Core State Math Standards.

I will use these games as math anchor activities and in math stations. They will also be available during indoor recess as well as before and after school.

I also included some children's books that promote growth mindset in their plots.
