My Students

Resilient, a beautiful word that describes my young scholars. My third grade students all have some type of learning disability or health impairment that negatively affects their academic performance. Learning is hard for them. They must work twice as hard as regular education students to produce the same outcome. I want to create an atmosphere of learning that is engaging and fosters learning for the individual needs of my students. My students inspire me every day with their persevering attitudes to be successful.

My Project

Students will use the VersaTiles at independent learning centers while I am working with students one-on-one to bridge academic gaps. Worksheets are so boring and have no engagement for the students. With VersaTiles, there are no worksheets; only hands-on learning. Even students with focus difficulties will surely be engaged during their learning.

By donating to our project, you will not only help to increase student engagement, but you will also ultimately help to increase their academic achievement by bridging gaps due to their learning disabilities.

Students will be able to simply focus on the academic material, and not be bored by another worksheet.
