My Students

My students usually attend a Title One public Montessori school. We are located in Charleston, South Carolina. The students in our class range in age from three to six. They represent a diverse group not just in age but also in ethnicity, race, and socioeconomic level. The majority of our classroom students (as well as school students) come from low income households.

Our transition to distance learning has been challenging since access to electronics like tablets or Chromebooks as well as access to WiFi are not readily accessible to all my students due to financial issues.

The disproportionate effect on low income communities/communities of color has been noted as the effects of the pandemic are studied. Many of my students are relying on older siblings or other family members to stay with them during the day while their parent or caregiver still works.

My Project

I want to create learning packs that my students can use at home. I want them to utilize materials that are engaging so that my students can have fun practicing the skills we learn in class. I also want them to be materials my students can use independently instead of having to have someone do it for them.

Letting my students independently practice their skills like letter identification or counting will improve their mastery while also not creating additional stress for parents and caregivers.

I want these packs to make everyone's day a little easier, more fun, and still be educational.
