My students are amazing and work so hard. They are 6th graders in a tiny rural east Texas junior high school.
My classroom is an adventure, and my students spend the year learning the skills they will need as they move forward in their junior high careers.
My students are excited to be on the "big kid" campus and begin the scary world of junior high. They are ready to explore the world through science and social studies (world history) and to expand their way of thinking. They take so much pride in their work and are willing to challenge their minds for the sake of learning. They are still wanting to "please" their teacher and try so hard at all they do.
I want to provide my students with as many exciting, hands-on, and real-world opportunities and adventures as I possibly can. Many of my students are economically disadvantaged and have limited resources. I want my students to know each and every day that they are smart, loved, cared for, and, most importantly, that they are capable of anything they set their minds to.
Time is money for all teachers. I would much rather buy activities from TPT and spend my time interacting in hands-on activities that my students find fun, enjoyable and engaging rather than taking valuable time to make my own activities.
My students are much more likely to retain the information when it is presented in a digital or hands-on format that they find interesting and fun.
I use TPT weekly because it saves me time and money and it gives me an abundance of wonderful resources that my students enjoy doing.
