My students are energetic, eager to learn, and full of love. In our low-income, high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. In my class of 26 Kindergarten students, I have six languages spoken, and 70% of my students have never been in any type of school setting before. Over 85% of my students qualify for free and reduced-price meals. Despite the many challenges my students face, they come to school excited to learn every day!
I want my students to be able to feel safe, successful, independent, and have the ability to challenge themselves in my classroom!
I am looking to provide my students with durable literacy and math stations they can use everyday. These stations allow my students to gain a better understanding of topics covered in class, a chance to work together, and practice their skills.
These materials will help me to make our daily math and literacy stations hands-on and engaging! By having a printer that allows me to print double-sided, in color on cardstock paper, I will be able to use pictures to support my many ESL learners. I will also be able to make activities last year to year and by being able to laminate things I print and make such as word and number puzzles. This also helps me to be more eco-friendly by turning papers into reusable whiteboards that can drawn on with dry-erase markers, erased, and passed on to another student.
My students need to be able to have fun while learning in a variety of ways to fit the needs of all my learners during daily math and literacy stations.
The Hot Dot resources for math will allow my students to independently check their work and practice math skills throughout the year. The ten-frame dice, addition locks, equation puzzles, digraph and vowel patterns will help provide variety to the activities and give students a chance to practice their skills in different ways. The Kids Echo Dot and table sign stands will help students know what to do at each station by displaying examples, and setting timers/cuing students to rotate to their next station.
