My Students

My class is full of bright, energetic young learners. The school is in a rural area, where exposure to diverse opportunities and learning does not come easily. The school district is as cohesive and supportive as I have seen or experienced.

I am a first-year teacher, in the process of gathering and collecting resources for differentiated learning.

The students are active, creative learners with a thirst for new ways to learn. The Covid-19 pandemic has caused learning to be an ever-changing experience, with constant adaptions and resources provided to be effective.

I teach three different classes, with two different sets of students. The subjects that I teach are math, science, and social studies. There is also an hour of intervention and remediation as well.

My Project

The Covid-19 pandemic has caused our school to switch to virtual learning at a moment's notice. This year alone my students have had to switch to virtual learning due to class quarantines, school wide shut downs, and even weather related events. When my students are at school, they want to work collaboratively with their peers. Help me provide my students with interactive learning games and activities.

I want to provide my math students with an opportunity to use Hand2Mind Plastic Rainbow Fraction Tiles to practice fifth grade Oklahoma Academic Standards.

My students will enjoy the use of hands-on materials while learning to add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators and simplifying.

As a first year teacher I am looking forward to using the Super Science STEM Instant Activities and the 50 Weeks of STEM Labs. My students will appreciate the anchor charts and videos that help aid in learning. They will also love the hands-on STEM labs.
