My Students

My students are eager, fun loving children who are excited to learn each and every day! With more than 85% of the student body on free or reduced lunch, it is difficult for many parents to provide supplies or other resources their children need on a regular basis. Many of my students come from homes where parents do not have the time or ability to help their child. My goal is to provide a classroom environment that accommodates all learning styles, where students feel successful. With education, you cannot have a "one size fits all" approach. Teachers and parents need to work together as a team to find what works best for the greater good of the child.

My Project

What is a QBall? A QBall is a safe and soft ball with a wireless microphone built into it. The students will roll or throw the ball during collaborative discussion to let their voice "be heard" through the speakers in the classroom. The QBall (wireless microphone) and computer speakers will make a difference in my students learning by encouraging them to be involved in the conversations taking place during instructional times.

I want to get 5 and 6 year olds engaged and involved in meaningful discussions about reading, math, science and social studies.

Let's face it, it's hard and sometimes scary to speak in front of a room full of people, even when they are your peers. The QBall will get my students excited about participating in group discussions. It will also create an awareness to the importance of paying attention to what is being asked from the teacher.
