My partners and I (Matthew) interviewed Ms. Brodsky (K-124) on how her students are engaged in learning. She responded by stating, “I can tell if my students have learned the material based on how

they perform on the tasks and activities I give them. I differentiate their tasks based on their reading and writing abilities. I make things engaging by doing a lot of hands on learning such as the time we made Green Eggs and Ham in honor of Dr. Seuss' birthday. The children were involved in preparing the eggs. Afterwards we wrote a "How to" as our activity.

I also use the Smartboard because it is a great tool for engagement because it can be used so interactively. The kids love it. I also have the children singing a lot. I incorporate it into my teaching as much as possible. Kindergartners love to sing.” We think that Ms. Brodsky does an excellent job on making sure that her students are learning!
