In room 304, students have a love for learning. My students are very inquisitive seven and eight year olds. This particular group is very thoughtful and endearing.
Students in my classroom are always busy, engaged with working on sixteen different learning centers in both reading and math every two weeks.
Most of my learning stations are hands on games and puzzles that I have created or bought myself.
Please help me continue to foster a love of hands on learning in this second grade classroom by donating more learning games to the cause. We are located outside of downtown Cleveland in a suburb called Westpark. Many of my students come from low-income households.
ONE WORD. ENGAGED. When students are engaged in their learning, they remember what they learn. I carefully chose materials that I felt were hands on and especially motivating to those kids who LOVE to learn that way. Who wouldn't want to Pop & Add? This game is similar to Trouble and students will want to pop the dice inside to see what they have to add. I chose the Lakeshore Learning Folder games because they are so colorful and eye-catching. These will surely get student's attention. I chose a couple of different digital fact machines for fact practice to feel like a video game. I also chose special rulers to help students learn how to measure to the half inch and quarter inch because I believe this skill is vital and let's be honest- after 12 years of trying every kind of ruler, I was ecstatic to find that these actually are a thing!! I also chose a fun magnetic bug toss addition game because who wouldn't want to throw a bug and make it stick on the board?? I can't wait to try it! And last, I chose a light up geometry center to help kids visualize space and practice creating larger shapes from smaller ones. What makes this so cool? It lights up!!
