My Students

My classroom is a community of learners who are engaged in daily activities. Various types of learners' needs are met throughout a unit. Opportunities to learn via kinesthetic movement, visual aids, collaboration, music, reflection, and technology occur frequently in my classroom.

My classroom is made up of a diverse population.

A total of 85 students are on my team. We have students that speak 6 different languages on our team. Our school includes grade 6-8 and has a student population of 1,400. Our economic status of families various greatly.

My Project

With the requested materials from Teachers Pay Teachers, my students will have timelines as visual aids available to help them understand the time frame we are discussing. Interactive notebooks, web quests, simulations, and hands on activities will be a part of the classroom routine. Student will be critically thinking, communicating, collaborating, and showing creativity with these materials. With these materials students will have a better understanding of how civilizations of the past have made us what we are today. Students will learn about the mistakes they made in the past so we won't make the same mistakes. Along with this, students will grow as a classroom community.

These materials will help me meet the needs of the diverse population in my classroom.

With these materials I will be able to meet the common core standards in ways that will motivate all learners.
