My students are a wonderful group of 2nd grade students. Many of the students come from middle-low socio-economic backgrounds. Some students are working below level in reading and math. My hope is through these materials, we can bridge the gaps and increase their learning.
In addition, I would like to do more hands on activities and centers with my students.
Students enjoy working independently on their skills and learning. Students can use peer groups and college readiness skills like responsibility, effort, and focus to gain knowledge.
While in the classroom we complete many foldable and interactive assignments. To do that we often use colored paper or yardsticks. In addition we will use some of these supplies for math and other subjects. Science interactive notebooks fill many roles. They promote students’ science learning and give students an opportunity to enhance their writing skills. They help students better appreciate the process of scientific inquiry. They help students organize their learning and, by the end of the unit, realize how much they have learned. For teachers, the interactive notebook is a unique means of assessing student learning and organization.
Science interactive notebooks are a tool used to strengthen student learning of curriculum (the input) through increased student participation (the output).
They can be used in class daily to promote student learning and prove to be successful because they use both the right- and left-brain hemispheres to help sort, categorize, and implement the new knowledge creatively.
