My Students

Our school year just began and it did not take long for my students to settle right in to our routine of remaining highly focused on learning. My students are passionate about learning, they are independent thinkers, and they are strong-willed.

They are brilliant, and they all receive a free breakfast and lunch, although they do not know what that means in the bigger picture, and I will never let them figure that part out!

Teaching my kids it is okay to learn in different ways, and that we should be accepting of each others' strengths and weaknesses, in addition to teaching them how to read can be a major feat, but it is one I am ready to tackle.

My Project

I truly have a class full of 21st century learners. They use iPads as their daily tool for learning. Their iPads are their pencils, their paper, their picture and chapter books, and their text books. What could these digital learners "possibly" need to make their day complete? They need two "Play Impossible" balls!

These techno-balls will support my students in physical play, hand-eye coordination, agility and creative thinking.

With activities such as Water Balloon Toss, Skyscraper, Showdown, and Impossible, my students will improve their health and wellness as they get to do what kids do best, play (a word I rarely use in my 3rd grade classroom).

Not only can these balls benefit my students during recess, they can also help them learn in the classroom. Tossing and catching these high-tech balls to the next speaker will help my reluctant learners be more engaged in the classroom setting, enticing them to want to participate in discussions that they would normally shy away from.

While I, as an educator in a true 21st century classroom, feel kids should be unplugged a certain amount of time each day, I feel these high tech balls will encourage them to get up and get moving during even our hottest Florida recess days.

Thank you for taking an interest by supporting my 21st century classroom learners participate in a 21st century recess!
