As a teacher and the K-5 Math Leader in a Title I elementary school, I often times notice that our students are not exposed to science outside of the classroom. Over seventy percent of our campus receives free or reduced-price lunch and often times, we have students who are not capable of even having their parents supply their own school supplies.
Our school is located in an area that was hit and affected by Hurricane Harvey, but our students are actively coming to school eager to learn.
In my classroom, I work hard to ensure a safe, secure and comfortable environment for learning and seek ways to make learning innovative. We have created a culture on our campus where our students actually look forward to the bus pulling up at their houses in the morning to bring them to school.
These kids will take advantage of any learning opportunity that is brought their way. Our motto at our campus is reach for the stars and our students do their best to reach beyond them.
We create interactive notebook pages daily but how do students keep up with them in the future? Introducing Rocket Book Wave!! We will use these Rocket books and pens to create notes in the books and save them to our google drive. From there, students can print their notes, save them to their phone, create posters or even send them to their parents!
Why be basic, when you can be innovative?
These supplies will help our students to step into the 21st century and have supplies and materials that will set us apart from the rest.
On the first day of getting our Rocketbooks each student will design a page and upload it immediately to get them excited about taking notes.
We will use the Rocketbooks as class sets, and the Frixion pens will be used throughout the year. Each year we will erase the books and use them again for up to 5 school years!
