"Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try!" Students in my classroom are eager to learn, passionate, and hard-working. They are an extension of my family; they inspire me every single day. I want to encourage them to try their best, learn from their mistakes and start to see their full potential.
My class thrives on hands-on, engaging activities that are fun, new, and transform their classroom to a different place.
I would love to be able to be able to have a few more materials in order to do two new room transformations. Room transformations have increased student engagement, student focus, and have helped my students better retain the concepts they are learning.
Rooms transformations are a way to create a magical experience for students; it can really help those concepts stick with them. Classroom transformations temporarily change a classroom environment in order to increase student engagement and enrich student learning with rigorous content.
I don't just want to teach a lesson to my students, I want to immerse them in a unique learning experience that ignites their creativity, knowledge, and passion for leaning; creating "magic" in the classroom.
Interactive project materials will help the diverse range of learners in my classroom. The glasses will give my kids a "wizardry" experience when learning about chemical and physical changes. The masks, bonnets will transform my classroom into an operation room when learning about the human body and sentence structure. The quills will be the perfect addition to our classroom during our 13 Colonies unit. The blue and brick wall decor will help "set the mood" by giving our classroom the feeling of being in a operating room or castle. I cannot wait to give my students these special moments.
