As a teacher in a low-income/high-poverty school district, my students are faced with problems inside and outside of our classroom. Despite the challenges they face, they come to school excited to learn. I admire how they put their best foot forward when they walk into the room no matter their circumstances.
My students love anytime they can be up moving around the room.
We do tons of activities and group work that allow for movement, learning, and fun to happen simultaneously.
My students love to move around the room. They enjoy learning the most when they are somewhere comfortable. In order for them to move around the room while they are working, they need a sturdy place to hold their work. They need a clipboard and TIME for kids magazines. These clipboards will enable my students to work around the room as they please.
I want to spark my students' interests through real, exciting events.
They love to read, yet most of their reading is done through fictional chapter books. The articles that come from TIME for Kids magazines allow students to learn about exciting, new things that are happening around the world.
