We Need to Know!

Help me give my students a subscription to Brain POP, a knowledge base to build their comprehension and understanding of the world and current events.

My Students

My special needs students are composed of explorers, thinkers, problem solvers, and survivors. We are a Title I school with 100% of our students on free or reduced-price lunch. This particular group of children have seen, heard, and experienced more negative impacts than most children their age. Unfortunately, many of my students suffer from a variety of special needs such as ADHD, ADD, spina bifida, anxiety, asthma, learning disabled, intellectually disabled and others. They have often had limited life experiences, exposure to literacy, and minimum conversation in or about current events. This lack of knowledge about current and world events hinder their comprehension of new information presented in the school setting. Each one of them is an individual thirsting for knowledge in a positive learning environment.

They are the overcomers!

Becoming an aware learner with a varied knowledge base will allows them to gain the tools they need to rise above it all and achieve their dreams in life.

My Project

Due to the limited life experiences of my students, they have a very little knowledge about the world outside of Tabor City, North Carolina. Providing information about many different topics in a multi-media format will close their learning gap and allow them to make mental connections to their learning.

Building a knowledge base about the world and current events will create learning connections across the curriculum.

By having access to a Brainpop Jr. subscription, my students will gain comprehension skills in all subjects areas. Brainpop Jr. has expanded learning tools to help kids create, construct, and collaborate as they explore their world. They will gain confidence in themselves as they recognize new information in the classroom setting and make connections to prior information. Knowledge is power and will make my students powerful and informed.
