CREATING AN OUTDOOR, HANDS-ON LEARNING LAB

Freeport Middle School

My goal is to provide a hands-on, outside learning lab for my agriculture classes. Just outside my back door (next to the greenhouse) is an area approximately 30 feet by 50 feet that I would like to make an outside, hands-on learning lab by adding three raised beds and clearly defining this area so it can function as a demonstration garden for my Agriscience classes.

Poetry: Inspiring Great Minds

South Walton High School

Teach living poets is a movement that celebrates today’s poets, who are diving into the real world issues and celebrations. In literature, students often struggle with poetry. We believe that this springs from their inability to relate; most often, textbooks provide poetry that is centuries-old. By providing the work of living poets, our students will have access to relevant content that speaks to their real world- socially, politically, culturally, etc. Students need to be exposed to relevant material addressing issues in today’s world, and through diverse lenses. With poetry more so than any other genre of writing, students can understand what it is to be human and to be alive right now. Through the purchase of various poetry collections, students gain access to living poets- they’ll see literature as a movement- not old, dead language in a textbook.

ABCDEFG, School Is The Place We Want To Be

Bay School

Allowing children to be exposed at a young age to literacy plays a key role in helping them understand the world and the people around them. When learning opportunities are present that place an emphasis on language and literacy, it creates a strong foundation for reading and writing.

Throughout the school year, I want my students to be actively learning through hands on activities that will foster their growth as well as provide an atmosphere where they love to learn because of the classroom environment.

After my beginning of the year assessments were completed, many of my students are below expectations in the areas of phonological awareness and print knowledge. My overall goal is for each of my students to be meeting or exceeding expectations when they enter kindergarten. These materials will give them opportunities to explore letters, letter sounds and provide a beginning foundation of reading.

A good book opens up a whole world of knowledge. My goal is to provide students with a variety of books they can enjoy to help them become lifelong readers.

'We Have the Need for Speed'!! Learning to 'Speed Stack' in Physical Education!

Van R Butler Elementary

The Goal: To improve the following- Cup stacking with 'Speed Stacks' is an exciting individual and team sport that promotes hand-eye coordination, quickness, and concentration. Cup stacking helps students use both sides of their bodies and brains to develop important athletic and lifelong skills. Sport Stacking is a fitness based sport that students from all backgrounds and abilities can do. Cup stacking can also help raise student's self esteem! When students cup stack they are crossing the 'midline' of their bodies and developing new connections in their brains. These new connections help to spur brain-growth which in turn improves and promotes greater academic achievement!

Physical Education standards that cup stacking accomplishes: 1.) PE.1.C.2.5- Recognizing the importance of practicing to improve performance. 2.) PE.1.R.6.3- Identify the benefits of learning new movement skills.

Creating Comfort in the Classroom

Van R Butler Elementary

In a child’s world, everything seems to be micromanaged by an adult. From what they eat each day to what they learn in school, students struggle for autonomy over their lives. I want to give my students the power of choice within the classroom. I want to have a variety of seating options to give my students the choice to create their perfect learning environment. When students feel relaxed and in control of their environment, they are more confident and ready to learn! My goal is to have enough flexible seating options in my classroom for each of my students.

Fitness for Life with Disc Golf

Walton Middle School

Goal: Our goal is to teach students the basic rules and skills needed to participate in the game of disc golf. This game is one of the fastest growing activities in many areas. We want to expose students to this game as a fitness activity that can be continued throughout their lifetime. Many of our students have not had the opportunity to play this game, so we want to get them interested in this lifetime fitness activity. Disc golf is an easy game to learn, anyone can participate regardless of age, gender, or financial status. It provides conditioning for the upper and lower body, aerobic exercise, and improves thinking and concentration skills. It also provides a time just to have fun with others or while playing alone.
