These students love to learn! They all come from different cultures and backgrounds. Our school models after Ron Clark and we value education and respect for others. Everyday we learn our standards while modeling how to make eye contact and tracking the speaker. Values like these are learned and reinforced during carpet activities. My students learn how to be kind and help each other. The school itself has adopted essentials from Ron Clark and it has taught our students to value their school by cleaning up after themselves and holding the door for others.
Room transformations allow students to stay engaged while they learn. Just recently they had an Italian day where they learned about Italy, and made fraction pizzas. They had chef hats, tablecloths in the Italy colors, and real pizza boxes to put their fraction pizzas in. In order to do a Beach Day before school ends, and to kick off Summer, we need items to make it happen. They will learn sun and pool safety, along with some math review. This is where the kinetic sand and beach items come to play. It will allow them to feel like they're at the beach while they learn to stay safe during the Summer, and continue to work on team building activities. The colored sand is to group my students by their house color and have them build as teams a structure that they will non standard measurement review. Organization is also a part of keeping the learning environment fun. When students can't find what they need quickly, it limits the time they have for these fun activities. This is why our class needs these items.
