My Students

My students are eager learners. They have so much joy and excitement for learning about the world around them. There are so many questions and ideas to explore.

There learning needs to be engaging.

With hands on lessons that will captivate there minds and open the world to them.

My school is classified as a Title One school located in the Western Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

My Project

Having hot dots in my kindergarten class will help make learning fun and engaging. Hot dots allows my students to be independent and have immediate feed back while learning. Students learn in so many different ways having different options to create repetition of skills helps my students generalize content. The more tools I have in the tool box the more engagement and buy in I have from my students. I also love how my students really enjoyed learning with these devices. What a fun way to learn and grow as students.
