My Students

"I hear I forget, I see I remember, I do I understand." This quote applies to learning across the curriculum because most, if not all students, understand better once they've done a hands-on activity.

I teach a group of students from a wide array of backgrounds.

A number of my students qualify for at-risk services and often times, they struggle mastering basic math concepts. Students are encouraged to practice math facts and work on skills outside of school to enhance math fluency; however, a great deal of the learning takes place only in the classroom. This is why I'd like to have short and simple activities that will grab the learner's attention and help them better understand various math concepts.

My Project

When students see there are easy to follow and fun activities to help reinforce the math lesson, I hope they will find that love of learning that some of them lack. The multi-sided dice will make learning place value and expanded notation fun. I strive to meet the needs of all learners and while some work best in whole group settings, providing small group or independent activities can be beneficial.

As a teacher, I am constantly adding "tools" to my toolbox to help me be a better educator; however, I also need to add "tools" to each student's toolbox, so he or she has something to go to when they struggle or need some help.

To provide for multiple learning styles, it is imperative that I have activities that are: catchy, entertaining, educational, and hands on. The pattern sticks provide quick and easy hands-on learning and the digit cards will be great for quick transition activities. These math games provide all that.
