My Students

My students are a creative bunch of kiddos, who enjoy fun, exciting, creative, unique, and "out-of-the-box" ways of learning! They are a very enthusiastic and involved group of children who demonstrate their learning in very creative ways. They are also a very smart but busy group and are constantly excited to learn and always want to learn new things. However, their busy bodies get in the way, and they sometimes have a hard time keeping their self-control. They love being able to apply their learning technologically.

My Project

We are requesting a new CD player for our classroom for use during small group rotations that we implement in our classroom every day. This particular CD player has a remote that will provide the teacher with easy access to start and stop the player without being distracted from the small group she is working with. We can also use this CD player with the multiple brain breaks we do throughout the day.

We are also requesting the Letters TouchTronic Interactive sets for students to build words to practice and reinforce their CVC skills and HFW practice.

The circle time interactive activity center will provide our class with an interactive experience in the mornings to practice our calendar routine.

All of these materials will provide our class with hands-on tools to keep the students engaged.
