If I could describe my classroom in five words, they would be: authentic, rigorous, supportive, engaging, and community. Students in my class have ownership of their own learning and a lot of what goes on happens organically. Hearing any student say, “wow, class is over already?” is the best compliment I could get, right next to, “I wish I could stay in your class all day.” Every student in my classroom has a unique voice and everyone in the room must respect it. Creating community is essential to taking risks and deeper learning. I care about kids and they know it. Taking the time to know my students well, not just as learners, but also as people has helped to create a real sense of belonging in our shared space. No matter the obstacles they face outside the class, they strive to be the best they can be every single day.
These items will really help students to understand they can learn and set the tone for their learning. They can make their learning personalized and choose what excites them with learning. I want students to be excited for centers and this is a really exciting and engaging center.
The two iPads will be used with the OSMO product.
Students will use this product with a word work center and they can choose to use the two iPads and the software during their personalized learning. The students will be able to personalize learning by choosing what skills they need to work on with the iPad software.
