I am a teacher serving two small groups of sixth-graders needing additional support in math. A typical day in my classroom involves math stations. Groups rotate between two desktop computers in the classroom to increase their math fluency, and borrowed Chromebooks to practice problems aligned with sixth grade math standards. The students are fully engaged with practicing their math skills when they have access to Chromebooks. Unfortunately, I share the Chromebooks with the other staff in the school. Lately, it has been a struggle to signup for the Chromebooks. I find that the students are missing out on their ability to practice math facts during those times.
I teach two classes, one group of 6, and another group of 7 students. Since my thirteen sixth-graders struggle with math, the 7 Chromebooks would provide each student an opportunity to practice their math skills everyday. Currently, it’s been a challenge to signup for the schools’s Chromebooks. I have to email the librarian everyday. When I have access, my students have been fully engaged. A few sites they enjoy are Khan Academy and Xtramath. Both sites increase my students’ math fluency. I hope to integrate more sites into my daily lesson plans when we have our very own Chromebooks in the classroom.
