My Students

My students are full of life and eager to learn. They come to school each day with a huge smile on their face! All of these students enjoy the day at school because they know they are going to have fun and feel loved!

Our school is full of hard working teachers and involved parents but we are are still in need of fun engaging materials.

So many of these students are ready to experience hands on games and resources. They need their hands to be busy in order to keep their brains busy!

My Project

Students enter the classroom with very different amounts of background knowledge and skills. We spend so much of our day in small group instruction in order to help differentiate the needs of all students. Sometimes the hardest part of small group instruction is planning meaningful and engaging lessons for the other students.

These resources will not only keep students engaged and excited about learning, they will also challenge them!

I love the way Hot Dots is an easy to use resource that involves very little prep time. It can also easily be used to differentiate the independent practice of reading and math skill through repetition or more challenging tasks!
