Kindergarten, Multi-age, 2nd grade, Brain Smart
My teaching style revolves around inquiry-based learning where the lesson begins with a question then students often do hands-on activities to practice skills. The hands-on activities keep students excited and engaged from beginning to end. This might be a buddy reading, a worksheet, experiment, exploration of materials, research, or follow procedures. Teaching requires critical planning, flexibility, and strong classroom management. I feel inquiry-based learning allows students to guide learning to fit their interests and builds strong, social, open-minded future citizens.
