My Students

Supporting Learners right where they are. My students started quiet but have blossomed and feel empowered in our small class setting. They love to share and help each other learn. My students meet in small groups based on their skills and not their grade level. They are not defined by grade level but by the new abilities they master.

Bringing meaning and Connection to the learning.

They do better when I can be creative and bring manipulatives to use in the learning. The "hands-on" component is essential to return the skills to the front of their memory and recall the lesson. We have had way too much virtual learning and need to keep our students excited about learning.

They come from all walks of life. Many of them have a "super-hero" single parent in the home struggling to support their child's missing skills from Covid isolation. But each of them has the tenacity to resist the hardship that we are facing this year.

My Project

How do we separate one type of screen time from another? How do we instill value in the educational programs from the entertainment of video games and YouTube? This year more than any other, I see a great need for students to feel connected. We need more than computer work and worksheets to keep our young learners engaged.

The foundational reading, writing, and math skills are vital to our student's success and interest in future learning.

These supplies will add a large component of "hands-on" activities that will help them connect to the new skills we are learning.

Most of my students lost learning opportunities during the pandemic which has put some years behind students from previous years. The more interactive we can be in our small group setting, the better recall they will have as we build on that learning. The variety of activities in my request also allows me to send home activities to strengthen skills that may need additional time to master.
