My Students

Capture our attention! What child doesn't enjoy playing games? I want to engage my students in learning games!

My students are a wonderful group of 4th graders.

I teach a full inclusion class, meaning my students exhibit a wide range of learning abilities. I have students who qualify for special education services and students who participate in the gifted program. This range of abilities means that all instructional activities and materials are differentiated to meet individual needs. My students hold high expectations of themselves and are always actively engaged in the learning process. My students attend a high performing public school in a large, urban school district. Our school does not receive any Title I funding, and we are actually 1 of the 3 schools in the entire district that does not qualify for Title I. Because of this, we rely heavily on our amazing PTO to fund the purchase of instructional materials and professional development. Parental involvement is also amazing at our school! Our wonderful parents make the job of teaching a bit easier!

My Project

A SmartBoard was recently installed in our classroom! The SmartBoard is not only a great visual aid in lessons, but it also captures the complete attention of all of my students! We have used our SmartBoard for interactive lessons, to review previously learned concepts, to view streamed videos from the Discovery website, and the list goes on! I would like QuizBowl software to use with my SmartBoard to make learning fun! All students love to play games. I would like to reinforce teaching with Quiz Bowl games. Students become the contestants in a Jeopardy like game to review any concept that has been taught. Students will be put in differentiated learning groups and given a wireless buzzer. I will create lessons, display them on the SmartBoard, and the game begins! The game will keep students actively engaged and motivated to keep playing. Learning made fun!

Quiz Bowl software will allow my students to actively become part of the review process of learning.

It can and will be used in all subject areas to review key concepts. Help my students have fun while learning!
