Learning Can Be Sticky!

Veterans Memorial Elementary

Students as young as kindergarten need to have a deep understanding of Florida standards in reading, writing and math. They need to be able to respond to text-dependent questions and show a deep understanding of the text and be able to make inferences. The new math program requires anchor charts to display content. By providing anchor charts and modeling every day and posting these charts around the room gives students a much-needed resource that helps them deeper their learning. it is going to be important during COVID-19 for students to have large and bright resources to see around the room. As they can not move closer to the charts. I need large wall-size post-it notes so students can strengthen their understanding of language-arts and math concepts.

My goal for this project is to give students choice and to allow students to study/read different genres! I want my students to have access to the 2020-2021 Sunshine State Readers. “The Sunshine State Young Readers Award (SSYRA) Program is a statewide reading motivational program for students in grades 3 through 8, in a collaborative effort between the Florida Association of Media in Education (FAME) and the Florida Department of Education (DOE). Sunshine State books are selected for their wide appeal, literary value, varied genres, curriculum connections, and/or multicultural representation.” These books allow students to broaden their horizons and expand their knowledge across genres.
Each year a new set of 15 books is chosen to represent the Sunshine State Readers program. I would love to be able to have multiple copies of these titles in my classroom for my students to check out.

Girls who have experienced trauma such as abuse and neglect often have difficulty managing emotions and concentrating in class. Using fidgets and other stress-relief items helps girls learn and practice positive coping strategies so they can stay focused on classwork instead of leaving class, interrupting, or getting distracted by others. Fidget items are helpful for managing stress, anxiety, and depression in positive ways.

Pace Center for Girls in Immokalee serves 65 girls and offers trauma-informed therapy to 25 girls ages 12-17 in a nurturing, gender-responsive, trauma-informed, strength-based environment. Girls who attend Pace are behind in school and have 4 or more risk factors, including physical/sexual abuse, neglect, grief, emotional health concerns, low income, substance abuse, domestic violence, academic underachievement, or incarceration of family member.
