My students are 10 and 11 years old. They have been out of school since March 19, 2020. They are so excited to get back to school and see other kids and life long friends. These students are creative, thoughtful, and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects, and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions!
Their motto is "Find the good every day, that is the Wildcat way."
Our Title One school is located right outside of downtown Guntersville, Alabama. Due to the economy over half of our students come from low-income households, and are on the free and reduced lunch program. Five of my students are special ed, and 8 are ELL.
Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited to learn new things.
Due to Covid-19 students are not allowed to share supplies or manipulatives in the classroom. The paper towels, individual scissors, and individual Kleenex packs will allow students to work in their designated area keeping them and there peers safe. The Teacher-Pay Teacher gift card will be used to purchase interactive math centers and quizzes that can be uploaded into Google Classroom to extend student learning.
By donating to our project this will allow students to continue to learn using Google even if they have to go home for quarantine.
Students will be able to simply focus on the academic material at hand, and not worry about what they may be missing at school. Plus in this technology literate world, any interaction with updated technology will increase their literacy as well as their desire to learn and use the new math technology!
