My class is made up of 31 students from a small rural area in California. My students come from a variety of backgrounds, and their diversity is celebrated in our learning each and every day. During the current pandemic many of my families have made huge adjustments from loss of employment, impacted childcare for parents who are still working, to health concerns with COVID-19.
My students deserve the opportunities to succeed in academics and life, even while having to attend school virtually ; my goal is to provide them with the tools and opportunities to succeed in their future endeavors.
I want the best for them, and I know that they deserve the best from me.
Virtual learning has been challenging for my young students. The predictability, and often times monotony, of notebook paper lessons loses their interest quickly. Resources like anchor chart paper, markers and a white board will help me to add color and interest to my lessons.
Anchor charts are student created resources that the students have ownership over in the classrooms, I want to add this ownership to their virtual space.
Students will help create anchor charts in our virtual space and will be able to have virtual access to these valuable resources.
The whiteboard will allow me to work with students in small groups, and one on one sessions, in a way that will allow me to reuse the writing surface. The reusable whiteboard will allow me to present help to my students in a way that is more interactive with them.
