Help me give my students games that meet them where they are in their learning. The students in my class are at several different levels of learning. Individualized games are key for reaching all of them.
Our school district is a mostly rural district consisting of anything from farms to suburban type neighborhoods. Some of our students work on their family farms before and after school.
The students at this school come from a wide range of income and education.
Most of our students do come with many different experiences as well. This means teachers are having to be creative about how they teach so they can reach all of the learning styles.
The students I service are usually from lower income families and really need the interactive learning model where they can use their hands to learn.
The students in my classroom are struggling readers. In any one group of students I have I will have multiple levels of students. We use games to help all students be successful in what they are needing at the moment. In this room I have the luxury of smaller groups to help accomplish this.
The students use the reading cards to read with me and work on their comprehension skills.
Then they move to board games to help with those individual skills they may be missing or struggling with. The I Can Do jar games are a great way for my students to work in small groups independently or with me. They absolutely love those games.
My students can be successful and I don't want their struggles to become a barrier to the learning that can happen. I want to give my students every opportunity to have fun while they are working on those skills.
