My Students

Our school is a K-5 elementary school, located in a rural district in Virginia. Our students are enthusiastic and curious about the world around them. Every day they come to school ready and excited to learn, and their excitement is contagious. Our students come from a variety of backgrounds and home situations, and many of them lack resources and support at home.

Providing opportunities for students to take home resources that help them develop their problem solving skills and express their creativity is essential.

My Project

Our school's Math Closet is a place where students can come and check out games, puzzles, and math activities. Since we began our Math Closet three years ago, we have checked out over 2,000 games and puzzles for students to take home and share with their families.

We love our school's Math Closet and work hard to keep it stocked with activities that are exciting and engaging for students.

Two of the most popular activities are Rubik's Cubes and Brainflakes. Our fourth and fifth grade students love Rubik's Cubes and the Rubik's Cubes provide an opportunity for students to improve their problem solving and spatial reasoning skills. Our students in all grades (K-5) love Brainflakes. It is amazing to watch their imaginations show and see the neat things they create with Brainflakes, while also developing their spatial awareness and creativity.
