My students come to school every day eager to learn. The students engage each other in class and do their best to learn as much as they can. They are happy to be in school and glad to have a place to learn.
I teach at a Title I school on the West Side of Jacksonville.
We're a magnet school for multiple intelligences, which means we support students learning in varied ways. Most of my students receive free or reduced breakfast and lunch. Class sizes are maxed out, but that doesn't change the mood of my students. They are happy to be at school and eager to learn.
My school is a magnet for Multiple Intelligences, which is a theory that everybody learns in a different way. According to Howard Gardner there are eight intelligences: musical-rhythmic, visual-spatial, verbal-linguistic, logical-mathematical, bodily-kinesthetic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, and naturalistic.
My students' learn in many different ways.
Many of my students' dominate intelligence is bodily-kinesthetic. These students learn better when they are in motion. Wobble stools will allow these students to stay at their desks and still be moving.
My students also love music. Learning through song and rhythm helps the learning concepts stick. The use of Flocabulary will help students learn concepts as well as vocabulary.
