My Students

My students come from a low-income area, with over 70% of our students receiving free or reduced rate lunch it can be a challenge. In our classroom we get creative with how we learn. We love to get up, move around, join other classes for team teaching and activities.

I strive each day to create a positive environment for my students.

Children love to get messy, get creative and use their imagination! I try to use this to my advantage; by incorporating creativity, imagination and just a little bit of mess in lessons. Magic can happen!

My Project

All morning long we focus on reading and reading skills in a variety of ways. Naturally, every year my students LOVE reading groups. It is a valuable time when we get to work in groups, pairs, and individually with students on their current level. My students love that we incorporate fun and unique ways to learn.

I would love these items to spice up our reading group time even more and give more choices for my students!

The spy pen will allow students to write words in invisible ink then use the light to find our phonics skill to highlight! The smelly markers will be a scented spelling center! Fun! The whiteboards will provide a perfect partner center allowing one student to verbally give clues while the partner tries to guess the vocabulary word. Finally, the ring toss games will be excellent to use for SO many games, spelled a word correctly? Toss! Nailed a math problem? Toss! Did you get the vocabulary word right? TOSS!

The activities I am requesting can be used in math and reading for so many different standards we will address.
