My Students

My students are very hard working individuals that have developed a love for PBL. They come from very diverse, socioeconomic populations and each and every one of them loves to learn science in fun and exciting ways. The more engaged they are in their learning the more they learn the subject matter. We also have a large population of students whose exposure to outside resources are limited. Our school wants to connect our children with high quality projects and develop great team work. Today's children are learning all different levels today and engaging them with high quality projects will allow all students to be successful.

Project based education is an exciting initiative going on in my classroom and I want my students to be able to create fabulous high quality projects.

I am looking large Post It note easel pads, Post It notes and Sharpie Flip chart markers for my students projects. During project time , they design and plan their projects on the large pads. They use the Post It notes during the entire time.

Our budget has resulted in teachers becoming extremely creative in their classrooms with very limited supplies. Please help out my students

My Project

My students will use the large easel pads and Post-It notes for different projects throughout the year. They use these for project design and brainstorming as well as sharing their ideas with their peers. I have found that these large pads are very effective in project design.

Students love doing projects and I am ensuring they are creating high quality projects that require lots of planning and research, these easel pads are key to their success!

Project based learning, I find is very effective in my middle school science class. High quality projects with public product takes lots of planning! Providing them with ways to brainstorm and share their ideas leads to successful projects. Being able to hang these sheets and collaborate with their peers increases student engagement which leads to successful students that are excited to learn
