Goal

Our goal is to increase student participation by transforming our classroom to match the subject matter being learned. This brings the material out of the book and makes abstract topics more concrete and come to life!  

 

What will be done with my students

We would choose 5-10 themes to create throughout the year. As a celebration or to spark interest in a new topic, we would transform our classrooms to these different themes. The activities done throughout the day would center around this theme to help them interact with the content in a fun way!  

 

Benefits to my students

This allows the creativity and critical thinking of gifted students to mix. This would allow them the chance to participate in fun, hands on learning. Students would take on the roles through the different themes, which would allow a more kinesthetic learning environment and different part of the brain to be engaged.  

 

Describe the Students

Both of our classes consist of Gifted students who perform above grade level and crave a higher rigor and need for creativity in their learning.  

 

Budget Narrative

We will use the funds to buy decorations and activities that match the theme for each unit. Examples include Cafe materials to do a book tasting, Construction materials for students to "build" their knowledge, Surgery materials to perform text feature surgery, etc.
