I am a third-year mathematics teacher in a middle school in the Berryesa (East Side) area of San Jose. I have many sixth grade students who are below grade level in their mathematics skills and abilities. Many of my students and I are fortunate that they, their parents, and myself are motivated to fill in those gaps and to work to bring their skills up to grade level. I make myself available for afterschool math homework help on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. I have an average of 8-10 students attending on each of these days. I need materials that will be both engaging and that will provide the practice the students need to finally master those standards they were supposed to have mastered during their earlier grades. Math VersaTiles are the tool that will meet that need. VersaTiles is a highly successful supplemental math program that allows teachers to assign classroom-tested activities according to individual ability levels. Students are able to work independently and at their own pace, receiving immediate feedback while correcting their own work. This process not only facilitates skill reinforcement, it also improves students' self-confidence and gives them a sense of pride that comes from successful academic achievement. Best of all, both teachers and students praise the many benefits of this developmentally sequenced program. I have requested sets for 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade levels. I do teach one Algebra section and find that some students have holes in their understanding that these materials could help fill.
