My students always need support to build their mental math skills. The dry-erase sheets will be placed on the desks for students to write on while they are thinking, which is a lot more fun than writing on paper! The calculators will be used as a class set and will help students focus on 8th grade math while they are building their mental math skills at the same time. The sharpener is to help make sure all students have access to the materials they need. Lastly, the game I chose specifically helps build mental arithmetic skills and I will use it as a way to make sure my kids are still learning and practicing during times when it's hard to keep them focused (such as the week before a break). These supplies will make a difference in my students' learning because the materials will engage them in the classroom and support building their gaps in knowledge.
