Return to RCP Return to Matrix. Artifact 16
Return to RCPReturn to Matrix
The following artifact reflects a power point presentation describing my social action project that the student teachers and I completed this semester at Kipps Elementary. The student teachers and I created over 70 interactive learning boards for the students to use as a review of the curriculum and for the SOLs in the four main subject areas, as well as physical education, health education, and the arts. In order to reach out to the community, we also hosted a Family Fun Game Night for the students and their families to come and play the games while enjoying refreshments and prizes. In addition to showing growth over time, the following artifact demonstrates how I have successfully met the following ACEI Standards: 1, 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, 2.5, 2.6, 2.7, 2.8, 3.1, 3.2, 3.3, 3.4, 3.5, 5.1, 5.2, 5.3, and 5.4.

Pajama Game Night!
March 27th, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
The student teachers in conjunction with their cooperating teachers would like to invite you to a “Family Fun Game Night” on Tuesday, March 27th from 7 to 8 p.m. This semester, the student teachers of Virginia Tech have worked hard to making learning fun and interactive for their students. We have created interactive games dealing with certain areas of the curriculum that are both fun and educational for the whole family.
This is a great opportunity for you to come play board games with your children as well as for the children to show you the interactive boards that we have been working on the last month. We would love for you to bring your family members, neighbors, friends, or anyone else that might want to participate. Also, please feel free to wear PJs to our Family Fun Game Night to help you relax, be comfortable, and enjoy playing the games. We will provide cookies, fruit, popcorn, and multiple drinks including lemonade and fruit juice during the event for everyone to enjoy.
Please join us for some family fun! We look forward to seeing you on March 27th! Thanks in advance for your excitement and participation!

Staff and Student Teachers
Here are pictures of our workstation where we collaborated and shared resources to construct the interactive learning boards. We made over 70 boards in the core and specialty subjects.
Most of our boards were made with manila folders, handouts, pictures, lamination, and LOTS of Velcro.
To come up with the ideas for the learning boards, the student teachers and I collaborated with one another, with teachers from the third through fifth grades, the Virginia Standards of Learning, and with the principal of Kipps. Together, the student teachers and I made over 70 different boards in the four main subject areas, along with physical education, health education, and the arts. The learning boards were a great way for the students to review what they are learning throughout the curriculum and prepare themselves for the SOLs. The student teachers and I also made master copies and templates for the teachers and grade levels to use in the future to duplicate the learning boards to eventually make classroom and grade level sets.
The Family Fun Game Night was a wonderful way for the student teachers to reach out to the community and to introduce our interactive learning boards to the students and their families. Several families and students attended the night making a great turnout. Everyone was invited to wear pajamas to help them feel comfortable and have fun playing the games with one another and their families. The students were able to earn prizes and enjoy refreshments with their families and friends. The night was also a great opportunity for the student teachers to get to know the community and their students’ families better. The Family Fun Game Night was a great success and a lot of fun for everyone!
