My students are growing learners who need additional support to spark and ignite their curiosity and love of learning. Some have struggled within a typical classroom all of their educational careers. At my school, our team of teachers hopes to break that cycle by using engaging projects, innovative teaching, instructional technologies, and partnering with businesses to offer more authentic learning experiences. We hope to help our students become the future boost the area needs to open new businesses and bring new ideas to make it the booming beacon it once was.
My students have great potential to be the change our area needs.
However, we need to continue to challenge and enrich their learning environment. By having project-based learning as our main focus to try and re-engage and enrich their learning, we also need to meet their other demands. We need to foster within them to independently seek out challenges and persevere through them. We need to develop within them the ability to become lifelong learners. By offering a variety of opportunities, we can help these students become well-rounded individuals.
Through restorative practices, students have brainstormed how to make Physical Education class more enjoyable. They had several different ideas, and one of them was getting a Switch to play fitness games. These starter games include Fitness Boxing 2, Just Dance 2020, and Ring Fit. These games are meant to be multiplayer, highly engaging, and fun. Because the Switch only comes with 2 controllers, we decided to get to extra sets of Joy-Cons so that more students can participate and enjoy. The traveling case will be used to preserve the Switch for as long as possible so students over several years can enjoy this equipment too!
