It is a privilege to work with a truly outstanding group of 6th grade students because they are inquisitive, love to learn, and creative.
My students are active learners who are highly motivated when presented with an engaging lesson.
They absolutely love hands-on, active 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. We need to provide them with the tools to make it!
Some of our students are able to have their tests read aloud to them. This is a great resource for them, especially if their difficulties are in reading the problems. The dilemma is that if tests are read aloud to a group, some students feel pressured to choose an answer quickly, mainly to avoid other students waiting on them.
To help alleviate students from feeling this stress, we would like some MP3 players and headphones for our classroom.
Students would be able to work at their own pace and not be embarrassed to have the question repeated to them. Not only would this increase self-confidence, but it's likely to increase testing performance by decreasing random quick guessing.
The greatest thing in life is to see a child's smile, to hear a child's laugh, and to know you impacted the way a child feels.
