I will be teaching in three separate rooms this coming year. My homeroom will be in a self-contained classroom of learners who require extra support behaviorally and educationally. They may struggle with controlling their emotions and often enter 6th grade 3 or more grade levels behind in mathematics. Creating an organized classroom with hands-on materials for students will be instrumental in setting them up for success throughout the school year. The 16 shelving cubby cubes will be space for the students to store their individual supplies, including content-subject folders, reading books, calculators, pencils, etc. The rolling carts will serve as a way to keep teacher material organized for students (including handouts for the day, homework, graded work, class sets of scissors, tape, geometric figures, etc.). The plastic storage bins will allow me to distribute the day's materials (dominos, whiteboards, tangrams, etc.) to students efficiently while ensuring material is not lost. My homeroom students will vary in their strengths and weaknesses and will need a variety of teaching methods to access the academic lessons. Items such as tangrams help students conceptualize geometric shapes and the handheld pieces allow them to explore other shapes. Dominos and playing cards allow students to make connections between numbers. Dominos can also be used when creating equivalent fractions. Playing cards allow students to play "math games" that require quick calculations and manipulations of mathematical arrays to find a required answer. My other two classrooms will consist of general education students as well as students with special education needs. By having additional material to offer these students (multiplication tables, number lines), they will be able to access learning targets at a similar pace and mastery as their peers. Lastly, I have included items to build a positive and encourage classroom environment, including the smile face board erasers.
