My Students

My students this year have a variety of learning styles. Each child has the potential to accomplish remarkable things throughout the school year. But, each child also needs to complete tasks in his or her own way. I provide a structured classroom, but am sensitive to my student's needs. I like to provide learning incentives, along with ways for students to channel their energy.

Many of my students struggle with focusing and with completing assignments.

I help my students set learning and behavior goals, so that they can keep caught up and feel good about their progress. I want to challenge each student enough, without overwhelming them!

My students tend to have a positive attitude, as they are focusing on kindness this year. We are Buddy Reading with our Cluster Unit, and look to provide service and friendship to these students. This helps my students to think about others more, and to focus less on their own needs. Students are leaving notes of kindness on other people's desks, in books, or wherever they see fit! They are so excited when someone finds a kind note! This helps my class to focus on and to find out positive things about others!

My Project

Many of my students struggle with focusing and completing tasks. The Wiggle Chairs and Sensory items will help students to get the wiggles out so they can concentrate on learning! My Students with ADD and ADHD use a lot of their energy moving about, wandering the room, and bothering others. The Chairs, Sensory Balls, and Gel-Bead packs will help many students to use a lot of their excess energy in a quieter non-obtrusive way. Wiggling on a chair and using Sensory Balls will help students to stay in their seats, and to focus during instruction and work time.

The use of STEM projects and activities will act as an incentive for students to finish their class assignments, so that they then have extra time for STEM activities.

I have a student on the Autism spectrum, and he really excels in building things, and making simple machines. The kit of STEM activities would greatly inspire him to complete his class work, so that he would then have enough time for building and experimenting with STEM activities. All of my students would benefit from having STEM Activities available for fast finishers, for STEM teams, and for projects. When paired with the Wiggle Chairs and Sensory items, the STEM Activities would highly motivate my students to succeed and learn!
