My Students

Making learning more meaningful and exciting requires educators to bring learning to real life. Students who practice applying their knowledge of content to real life or hands-on activities perform higher on state assessments.

The students in my classroom lack opportunities to apply their academic content skills in real-life application projects and activities.

Having tactile materials to enhance not only instruction in those areas, but reinforce the integration of science, social studies, and emotional skillss with reading and writing, set my students up for more success. Implementing real life activities, inquiry-based learning, projects, and labs requires a lot of time and dedication from the teacher! My students need more experience taking their hands-on learning to another level. Having resources to make this happen is appreciated.

My Project

My students enjoyed learning within small group and whole group. We conduct a lot of our new content as well as our review learning sessions through group sessions on the computer and sometimes in our notebooks.

Having double sided dry erase boards and markers for each student will help them demonstrate their competition level of thinking and understanding in multiple group settings, as well as practice those important penmanship skills.

My students already love coming to the board to show their thinking but sometimes get sad when they are not picked. So, why not bring that enjoyment and learning excitement to their own personal hands. Having these resources will not only increase the focus of my students, but also help tailor their learning needs on a more consistent basis.
