My students need a whiteboard sticker to turn walls and windows into usable surfaces, as well as markers and a laminator for work spaces where they can create and display their ideas.
My students come from diverse backgrounds. Our school often has the greatest ethnic diversity of all the schools in the state. The majority of them receive free or reduced-price lunch. Our school encourages project-based learning, especially those activities that promote the development of 21st-century skills.
Like most kids, they thrive in a learning environment in which they are actively engaged and challenged.
Our school encourages technology-based learning which prepares them for high demand professions but also has the side effect of increased screen and seat time. I like incorporating technology activities but also to keep my classes physically active and provide supportive learning environments.
My students are most engaged when they are asked to create, critically think, and collaborate. These materials will give students more space to communicate their thinking. The whiteboard sticker turn walls and windows into writing spaces. The chalkboard markers will turn their desks into idea boards. The laminator will allow students to learn science content using class sets of manipulatives.
With these resources my students will have a place where they can share their ideas and learning in a whole group setting.
Once their science models and thinking are displayed around the room, students can give feedback on their classmates' ideas during gallery walk activities. Using this technique, I can monitor student understanding, support students with misconceptions, and probe students for deeper understanding.
