We are excited to share another one of our Innovative Grant winners with you! This week, we are featuring a project from our Elementary Literacy Facilitators, Mrs. Muller & Mrs. Phillips. They collaborated on this project to make books more accessible to our students! To ensure that teachers could account for the learning styles of all of their students, Mrs. Muller & Mrs. Phillips added MP3 players in classrooms for students to listen to the books while reading along. What a great way to expand the selection of books for our students and teachers!
Through our Innovative Grant program, made possible by your sponsorships and donations to our annual Stem Soiree, teachers have the opportunity to submit an idea or project through an application, and if their project is chosen, they receive money for materials and supplies along with a reward for trying something new. We believe it is important to encourage teachers to seek out and implement teaching strategies that reach all types of learners and to reward them for thinking outside of the box!
