Lively, energetic, and kind are three words I would use to describe our young learners. Every day, they do their best to achieve all that they can. Our students desperately want to be actively involved in what they do in the classroom.
Living in a large city can be difficult for many young children.
My young learners live close to the downtown area in our city. They go to a Title I school where all students receive free breakfast and lunch daily. Their basic food needs, except for dinner, are taken care of, but now they need something to sustain their minds.
Every day, I teach six classes of students. All of these children are in the third and fourth grade. In Science, students are to read, inquire, and investigate the world around them. Doing so requires me to be excessively prepared for those young learners in front of me at any given time.
Differentiation is the key to success when teaching students with varying ability levels.
With the donation of paper in a multitude of colors, I am able to run off materials accordingly for the students in which I teach. When given a Science Reading passage, each level of the text can be on a different color so that no child is reading text that is much to difficult for them.
