In a thriving school of over 700 students, I teach 25 energetic 2nd graders who range from high achieving to limited English (ELL) students. We are also privileged to serve military families and children of Barksdale Air Force Base Airmen. Each student helps diversify our population, bringing in knowledge and experience of various cultures and traditions.
No matter the academic or ability level, all of my students have different learning styles that I strive to meet every day.
In return, our students work hard to learn and grow in their academics each day, completing STEM activities, RTI rotations, and computer-based math lessons, leading our school to be a "B" school!
Small group interventions and mini lessons are very important opportunities for teaching. With so many computer assisted lessons, a small monitor to place behind me would allow students to see examples and watch visual elements of lessons. We will use this for phonics activities, video stories, digital math lessons, and STEAM activities at the small table. Some activities we will incorporate for STEAM centers are bird cams, NASA interviews, weather forecasts, and code.org. We have used these in a limited way, but look forward to having this technology as a resource in a STEAM center at the small group area. With your help, this will be utilized in both direct instruction and student-led centers.
