Ms. Humphrey from Dallas TX is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Kinesthetic Brain Engagement

Help me give my students get Play-Doh, it's a great way to keep students engaged, employ creativity. When students are forced to synthesize what they’ve learned and made a sculpture, they are creating crazy critical thinking skills.

My Students

My students are creative, thoughtful, and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects, and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. Truly, they are my inspiration!

Our school is nestled in an area of Dallas were once was surrounded by top business and industrial commerce.

Now with many of those businesses closed, our families often struggle to find employment and opportunity.

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!

My Project

One of the common assessments used by English teachers is a Socratic Seminar. One type of Socratic Seminar is called the “Fish Bowl” when one group of students is in the center having a discussion and the rest of the students are listening and taking notes. Often I’ve noticed the outside circle of students is not engaged in the class discussion. A great way to use Play-Doh is to ask students to create a sculpture related to the discussion and explain how and why that sculpture applies to the class discussion or class lecture.
