Welcome to our middle school classroom! We are an energetic class where the students love to explore new ideas and concepts. We spend our days exploring and learning about reading, math, and STEM activities. When we walk through the door to class, we are one as a school family.
In our class, we work together to have fun, make mistakes, and learn!
We come from diverse backgrounds with a wide range of world experiences. We use flexible seating and grouping to make accessing knowledge more ergonomic and personally productive. As we navigate middle school, we are learning to work together, learn from each other, and understand the similarities and differences that make us all unique.
Many of my students struggle learning new academic concepts, as well as interpersonal communication skills. It can be difficult for them to answer simple questions like, "How was school today?" or "What did you learn at school today?" This makes it really difficult for parents to connect with their children and the school.
The PowerMyLearning program allows students to engage their parents in what they are learning at school.
Through the use of the digital platform, parents receive a text to let them know that the lesson is available. Students can then use the program as a reminder and a communication aid to talk to their parents and teach them about what students are learning in class! This program will help my students to have talking points and visuals to help remember what was taught. Students who have parents who are actively involved in their learning do better in school. This program will facilitate this interaction.
