The 8-9 year-olds in my classroom love to learn and work together to discover new things every day. We have a strong focus on inquiry-based learning. My students have a growth mindset, knowing they must take risks and try new things. We "fail forward" in our classroom, learning and growing from our successes and failures alike.
My students are highly inquisitive and love learning new things.
They are highly curious and enjoy hands-on discovery learning. They love building, exploring, creating and sharing what they learn with others. My students love "Genius Hour" where they choose a topic of interest to them, research that topic, and then share what they've learned with the class.
My students are refining their reading skills. I have students at all reading levels, from beginning readers to strong readers, all working on improving their reading skills. We are at the crucial stage where we transition from learning to read to reading to learn.
Students are so excited to come back to school! When they come back they will need their own whiteboards to help us keep our classroom clean and safe. We use these magnetic white boards daily as my students work around the room. The whiteboards will be used with small group and whole group work as my students practice math, spelling and cursive writing.
These whiteboards will help prevent the spread of germs in my classroom.
We use whiteboards daily in math and literacy instruction. Our current boards community shared, are very worn, and do not fit in student desks. These are perfect size for students to store in their desk, and the cloth bags will help protect them so they will be able to be used for years to come. Because they are magnetic, we can use the with our making words stations in literacy. They are also two-sided, allowing for writing on one side and math drawings on the other.
