The Finishing Touch
My students need games, magnetic letters and read-alongs to help build a bridge between common core and their prior knowledge.
Our children are now facing a task where they are expected to think like adults. The standardized tests prove this. I encourage my students to think outside the box and provide tools to achieve this.
My students are some of the most hardworking students.
They are always willing to try new things. I love to see the "ah-hah" looks on their faces. This happens quite frequently! I hope to see more proud smiles with these requested tools. When students are in charge of their own education and learn on their level, they learn more.
Imagine a classroom where you have every tool within reach. Imagine that you have every tools to help you learn. Imagine your child in that class. Imagine the look on a child's face when they finally understand a new concept. I want to have that class. The items I am requesting includes a Vocabulary Bingo game, Inference Clue game, and Hatchet Read Along. These items will be used during small group time where I will be working in groups of 4-5 students, focusing on their individual needs. The next items I requested were a magnetic story board, magnetic letters, and magnetic prefix and suffix word clusters. These items will be also be used in small group where the students will use the objects to build on spelling and vocabulary. The final item requested is an anchor chart stand. The stand will hold a chart which shows where each student should be during small groups and which benchmarks they should be focusing on at any given time during the lessons.
This project is so important because I want to provide my students with every tool they will need to help them build a deeper knowledge of the world around them.
The requested tools are meant to build on what they already know and encourage them to grow.
