My Students

Our students are eager to learn! They come to school wanting to learn and ask lots of questions. Our students are always looking for ways to share with others the projects we are doing in our classroom. Our school is a magnet school in a large, urban school district. The school is an International Baccalaureate (IB) World School. As an IB program, we focus on global themes that students can relate to and want to know more about.

At our school, we encourage inquiry and questioning of how things work and why.

We focus on hands-on inquiry. We believe in the power of choice and having lots of options to help us learn.

My Project

Unstructured play is such an important aspect for the growth of young minds. Recess is key to this unstructured play and is imperative for day to day learning. Sometimes, there are unpredictable indoor recess days when weather is a factor. Instead of students choosing technology every indoor recess day, they need cooperative, creative thinking inspired activities.

Using these indoor recess games, students will collaborate, communicate, think critically and creatively, and demonstrate good citizenship.

By supplying my students with quality, fun, creative indoor recess activities, I can encourage creative thinking, problem solving and team building. Thank you so much for supporting our classroom!
