My Students

My classroom consists of a diverse make up of students from different backgrounds. They enjoy learning new things and learning from one another.

My students are very caring with their own unique personalities, strengths, and challenges.

We work hard to create a community of caring and learning with each other. The students work hard to meet their goals every day. Thank you for your support in helping to make this happen. We appreciate any help you may want to give.

My Project

We have been given resources to use such as iPads and whiteboards, however our resources are not complete. We do not have headphones for our iPads, so it is difficult to use them fully without disrupting others. Likewise, we have whiteboards, but have run out of markers, so cannot use them.

We learn best with motivating, hands-on resources.

My students love the sounds that come with programs, but it often disturbs others and is distracting due to the sounds. Also, it is helpful when we can show our responses and get immediate feedback kinesthetically on whiteboards, but this is also difficult without markers. I am asking for dry erase markers and a class set of headphones. Thank you for your help.
