Our school is a Title One school with many students receiving free or reduced-price lunch. Many of the students at our school are considered economically disadvantaged. Some of them live in poverty and have experienced trauma. Despite this harsh reality, they are amazing and capable children who are ambitious and hungry for learning.
My classroom is filled with first grade students who are passionate, curious, and eager to learn!
They come from diverse backgrounds, and each has their own way of learning. We use Project Based Learning to create authentic, relevant learning experiences. They are curious, ambitious and deserve the very best!
My first grade PBL students have been working hard to design interactive learning spaces for our primary playground. Currently our playground has four swings, one piece of playground equipment, large concrete areas, and many bare concrete walls.
They have designed educational and appealing spaces on the concrete surrounding our playground, so it can become a more engaging and safe place to play.
My students researched how to make our playground more engaging, safe, educational, and appealing. They then designed spaces that can be painted onto the concrete areas and bare walls. We had presentations so the students could present their designs to our district safety experts, school administration, and families. Now my students and their families are ready to bring the designs to life, using paint!
