My Students

As a substantially separate classroom, our goal is to support students academically, socially, and emotionally. With this in mind, my class consists of energetic and enthusiastic second and third-grade students that require more classroom tools to support their different learning needs.

The school is located in Title 1 district where a majority of students qualify for free or reduced lunch.

There is also a strong English Language Learner population and many students have had limited exposure to English. Our school is a community full of diverse, motivated, and ambitious student learners.

My Project

When teaching all students in my class I need to take into consideration the different types of learners I have. Some students are auditory learners, some are visual learners, and some are kinesthetic learners. I myself am a visual learner and a little bit of a kinesthetic learner (i.e. hands-on learner). "Give me a project any day but just don't tell me to write a report!"

This project is geared towards building up the visual and kinesthetic materials that I use in my centers to support learning.

Some center work is typically independent or with minimally staff support. This means I need to access student learning through the materials I provide at the center. This could look like building words by hooking paper letters together with the math links or writing words on the whiteboard with magnetic letters. Centers could also be constructing puzzles to work on visual perception skills or uses the play money to help solve the math problem: "If I have $1.50 how many $0.25 candies can I buy?".

With the materials from this project, I will be able to build many different types of centers that target both literacy and math standards but in a fun and engaging way for all students to access the skills.
