Help me give my students the opportunity to use stopwatches when working with their STEM projects and calculating speed. The fluorescent light filters will help my students who struggle with visual processing.
My students are very creative, thoughtful, and inquisitive. They enjoy active, hands-on, and engaging project opportunities. My students use opportunities that allow them to think outside the box. They come to school with a positive attitude and ready to learn new things. Each day they make it their goal to be positive, respectful, and be active learners. They take on the daily challenges with a growth mindset!
In my classroom, we have created a positive learning environment where we encourage each other to grow personally and academically.
Each student is working towards their own individual learning goals but is also willing to help their peers reach theirs. This year we are incorporating a variety of learning strategies such as group work, partner work, collaboration, technology presentations, and performance assessments. So far my students are very artistic and enjoy creating projects using technology.
Students will use these stopwatches to continue with their STEM projects. The stopwatches will be used to take time in conjunction with distance to calculate the speed of an object. For example, we use distance, time, and speed when making parachutes. We can also use these stopwatches when building rafts and seeing how long it can last on the "river".
The filters will help my visually processing disorder students with focusing in class, instead of worrying about how bright the class is.
It is hard when my students struggle with the bright fluorescent light all day long. These filters will help my students focus more on tasks and less on how bright the classroom is.
