High Levels of Engagement

My students need a classroom carpet, subscriptions to TIME for Kids, and Scholastic News.

My Students

Our classroom is a highly interactive learning environment, where students are eager to "show case" their talents, and gifts. There is a sense of pride which they exhibit throughout the school day.

Our students possess a "lets get this done" mind set.

Students are highly motivated learners who are eager to research, analyze and explore, information across all content areas. Students are a part of a talented and gifted program and are interested in varied exploration. They are usually highly engaged working in small groups, and partnerships while writing, reading, analyzing and researching. So far this year, we have read a large variety of non-fiction books as well as exploring other resources. Right now we are eager to engage in the reading of new social issues and current events. We hope to gain new insights into the global community and other national issues. Our school is small, with high need learners, and a high poverty community. Consequently, we have limited funding and resources. Increasing resources would support our different learning styles. In an attempt to keep students motivated and their interest levels high I have decided to write this project.

My Project

We need a rug! The one we have now is 6 years old and visibly aged. The rug is our central meeting area where we have whole class discussions, whole class meeting. This makes it a critical part of our learning community. These child friendly informational magazines, such as TIME for Kids and Scholastic News, will become a part of our classroom library and instruction. They will also be a part of students informational reading for independent practice. This will provide a wealth of information for our students as well as a constant quest for knowledge and information. Additionally, our students are on such a quest for learning, and being informed citizens while simultaneously meeting state standards in Science and Social Studies. These magazines will add value to our learning community.

This project is multifaceted in that it will provide multiple opportunities for students to learn, grow and explore new concepts and content across both nationally and globally, through the use of the magazines.

Additionally, students will "live" in a comfortable learning environment. They will be provided with the opportunity to continue their high levels of engagement and exploration of different concepts using varied modalities.
