My Students

My classroom is filled with students from diverse backgrounds. We all hold ourselves to three core values: Take Care of Yourself, Take Care of Each Other and Take Care of This Place. These few items could increase learning engagement and decrease paper waste by having concrete learning manipulatives to learn through playing. Also included; earbuds. Student have no reliable audio connections for stations. Many of my families were unable to provide earbuds to their students on school supplies. My students are bright, capable and ready to be the best learners they can be. These few team and classroom related activities would really help in a high need area. My class is filled with students who may not speak the same language but through learning through play we are all learning to take the time to respect and cherish each other.

My Project

These materials will help students do well on computerized test approaching for the middle of the year. They will get daily use from headphones and dry erase markers to enable learning and reduce carbon footprint in elementary schools.

Headphones are essential to a successful test.

My children are using faulty earbuds or older headphones. We wold like to get a decent class set to care for the remainder of the year.

The dry erase markers like with most of our supplies will need to be replenished throughout the the year. By using dry erase markers and white boards I can move around the room for instruction and students are able to quickly participate in discussions and small group work.
