Our school is located in North West Alaska, an hour and a half plane ride from the nearest major city. We are a Title One school with students from all walks of life learning together.
We all learn from each other with our different family traditions.
We live a subsistence life here. Each season keeps us busy with supplying for our families. We fish in all seasons, pick different berries, hunt different wild game, pick greens, go crabbing and do many other activities.
I am requesting headphones to replace some broken headphones that we have in our listening center.
I would also like to have my students build on their vocabulary skills.
In our listening center, we listen to stories and draw pictures or fill out a worksheet. This vocabulary skills pack would help to reinforce certain skills that we focus on in our reading program. We would also be saving trees because white boards come with this particular pack. In this pack there are six different skills that I can choose from to build on their skills. The students will still be able to read their own stories and just apply these skills to whatever story they have read. I believe I can use this in many different ways in the classroom.
