My Students

My students come from a low poverty area and do not have the resources that my classroom provides them. I want to get some resources to aide in their learning and help me teach them remotely. My students have some level of a diagnosis and need extra aides to keep them motivated to learn. My students are learning from their homes with their parents that are trying so hard to get through this. We can do this together!

My Project

I hope to use these materials over virtual learning to help students understand what they do and how to find things around the house that may be similar to these items. I want to teach them about science and what the affects are when things get hit. I want my students to get motivated to watch my zooms so, I need to spice them up with some new activities. Teaching them about science is very important where some of my students are not even going outside so, having proper materials to teach can make a difference for them.
