My Students

Sixth graders are such a fun and unique group. COVID-19 has impacted this group, where they haven't been able to do things and be together to create a bonded classroom environment. Being on quarantine, several COVID protocols with school closures and online learning have made creating a fun and engaging classroom challenging. I want to provide activities for them to create this classroom culture. We are always looking for new ways to be innovative and spark creativity and intrigue in the classroom.

This year, I am trying to do more classroom transformations and fun ways to engage student learning.

Creating these engaging activities requires supplies to transform my classroom and supplies to help create an inviting atmosphere.

My Project

I feel like students need to LOVE to come to school. My 6th graders are the oldest in the school, but they still love to be engaged in exciting activities and have fun. I would love to do some engaging activities for room transformations: The Greatest Show, Rock Your School, Glow Games, Candy Land with book characters, and a Book Party. For example, in "The Greatest Show," in these activities, I will decorate my classroom like a circus to engage and grab their attention. For a week, I will do social-emotional learning activities to help them see that they can be the best. These room transformations help the most with social-emotional, and I always tie in academic learning. These activities provide engagement, so the students love coming to school and learning fun.

6th graders love engagement that is connected to their learning.

I feel like these items will help transform my classroom and engage my students fun and positive way.
