My Students

Our school is K-8th grade and located on the north side of Milwaukee. Most of my students come from low income households and do not have the means to explore and be exposed to new ideas. Many of my students need extra support to stay on task and follow directions.

My students are very excited about learning and full of energy.

They enjoy being challenged and trying new things. They love to participate in small group projects and to take ownership for their work. My students become more independent as the year goes on and lead small groups or the whole group! My students are great helpers and are very compassionate towards others.

My Project

Every morning we have intervention time to support individual students learning. During this time we use hands on games and activities that we create on our own. Each game is printed, laminated, cut, and stored in a container based on the content. Each container has many games at various levels so the students can challenge themselves to improve their skills and master the content we are working on.

My students love the play games and engage in hands on learning.

We use games for math that include number matching, addition, subtraction, and sequencing. We also use games for literacy that include beginning sounds, rhyming, spelling, and syllables. The games are also used for individual students who need support in certain areas. The games motivate our students to learn and offer them a more engaging way to practice new skills!
