I have fantastic students. However, with no notice, we were thrown a wild curve ball. My students are learning from home on a wide variety of Internet capable devices, and I am teaching lessons from a small corner in my basement.
This project will allow my to make my lessons engaging and interesting again.
This project will equip me with a variety of props and special effects.
A variety of prop hats(pirate, chef, derby, cowboy, sleuth, gladiator, etc.) and fake stacks of money may not sound like necessities in a classroom. However, now that my classroom is a corner in my basement, they are. With this project, even though I am preparing lessons from home, that doesn’t mean I can’t include these props as I teach about discounts from a sales rack in the local supermarket, or about sales tax from a gas pump. I can teach about slopes from Aspen, Colorado, and about distances from a pirate ship. Dressing up while I video my lessons in front of a green screen will definitely keep my students attention. The possibilities are endless.
By donating to our project, you will not only help to improve student engagement and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement.
I have wonderful students, but keeping their attention in these times has become a difficult task.
