Students today are more engaged when they learn by seeing, touching, and becoming physically involved with concepts being taught. As a fourth grade teacher, I strive to find high interest activities to engage my students in, to enhance their learning in a positive way and to create a love for learning that will last a lifetime.

Goal

Students today are more engaged when they learn by seeing, touching, and becoming physically involved with concepts being taught. As a fourth grade teacher, I strive to find high interest activities to engage my students in, to enhance their learning in a positive way and to create a love for learning that will last a lifetime.  

 

What will be done with my students

In my classroom, students are instructed on levels that are beneficial to meet each students' individual learning needs. Because this type of instruction can not be conducted during whole group lessons, small group and independent working time is necessary. The math center and reading materials requested will greatly enhance this critical need in my classroom this year, as well as years to come. According to the initial STAR Reading Assessment given in August, 6% of my students are below proficiency in reading. I am hopeful that with the addition to my classroom library of the requested high interest books, that my students will enjoy reading them and become engaged in learning and reading in a new and productive way. I truly believe that reading benefits all subject areas and increases a students learning. According to the initial STAR Math Assessment given in August, 24% of my students are below proficiency. I am hopeful that with the addition of these items for math centers, that students can interact with math in a fun, new, and creative ways. 

 

Benefits to my students

If granted the requested reading materials, my students will be able to use these items during reading instruction, independent reading time, as well as during small group "Book Club" time. If granted the requested math materials, my students will be able to use these items to enhance what we are learning at the time as well as previously learned concepts by participating in small group centers to learn in a hands on way. It is my hope that the students in my class will be at 80% proficiency in Reading and Math by May 2021 with the help of these materials. Not only can these items be used to enhance the education of my 18 students this year, but these items can and will be used with fourth graders for years to come.
