My Students

As a new teacher, I am trying to provide my students with the latest and greatest resources and materials to help my students learn to the fullest capacity.

Our room is full of energetic and zesty students ready to learn!

My students come from the surrounding downtown area of the school. Because I work in a low socioeconomic school, I am trying to provide my students with as many resources that I can! My students are full of energy that I want to aim towards learning.

My Project

These materials will mostly be used for students to explore building concepts, like making a structure strong enough to support 100 pennies or which shapes are stronger shapes for building.

Using first hand experiences to "build" our knowledge.

We will use these Legos and building materials to make words, as well. Students will use their knowledge of CVC words to combine sounds and read words.

The students are always interested in things that require them to dig deeper. By giving them hands-on experiences they are able to problem solve with a team and on their own. We are looking to "build" classroom experiences and interaction with others.
