My fifth grade students are an eclectic bunch, Dominican, Puerto Rican, Mexican, German, Polish, Ecuadorian, Brooklynese, and American transplants. They are a joy to teach!
Despite varied backgrounds and experiences, my students find common ground in a single building located on the Northside of Williamsburg in the borough of Brooklyn where they are ready to learn and broaden their horizons.
Our school is a vibrant community of thinkers big on social and emotional learning and sharing the best of who we are with each other.
Geography is something we all need a better grasp of and it doesn't have to be boring. Indeed, my students need to hone their geographic skills when it comes to knowing the 50 states and what better way to learn then with the time-honored Scrambled States of America game! If you don't know the game, the 50 United States of America have traded places so they could see another part of the country. Kids learn along the way as they help the states find their way home!
This was a real family favorite when my boys were younger and today they have excellent geography skills and a deep interest in American history.
I hope to instill the same love of geography and interest in our varied 50 states in my fifth-graders.
