My Students

Our multi-age classroom is a community of learners and growers. We spend two years with our students, guiding them and watching them blossom. We emphasize working together and being a community. Each student helps another and learns in the best way, by teaching.

Our students are an amazing and diverse group of third and fourth graders.

They come from high poverty areas. School is often their comfort place and provides food as well as stability. The school is Title I funded. Our classroom is like a community, and we want the students to feel comfortable and safe to learn.

My Project

My students need these supplies to further enhance their learning through escape room games. We will be able to use these resources to play escape rooms and have the students find clues to solve problems. We currently have Breakout EDU boxes in our classroom and use these to teach students math, reading, science and social studies. The padlock and four digit locks will help replace locks and add locks to our boxes. The braille board will be an awesome addition to our clues. The padlock with letters will be another amazing tool the students can use to solve problems and find clues. Lastly, we will use the card stock to print clues for the escape boxes and rooms.
