My Students

Would you rather sit at a desk all day long using worksheets or use hands on games and activities to learn the same thing? Well, I can tell you my students would much rather be playing and learning at the same time.

My students are a loving, friendly, and energetic group of 4th graders in an all inclusive, urban setting.

Many, if not all of my students are provided a free breakfast and lunch everyday. My class loves any opportunity to use hand on games and activities to promote academic learning. Basically, any time they can do work in a group they are thrilled.

My Project

My students are a group of fabulously talented 4th grade students with a ton of energy. I try and get my students up and moving around as much as I can. With new math and ELA games I will be able to review key 4th grade topics while students are playing games. I can really notice a difference in their attention level and interest when they are participating in hands on games and activities, rather than taking notes or completing worksheets at their seats. My students will also be able to work together and share their ideas as they play.

Your donation will truly make a difference to the students in my classroom because they will be able to learn and review using hands on games and activities in reading, writing, and math.

This is not the only thing that will get them out of their seat to release some energy. Having a student mailbox for each student in my class will also give them the opportunity to stretch their legs and brains for a few moments every day.
