My Students

"The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires." -William Arthur Ward.

I want to inspire my students to learn and be everything that they can be in this world.

My students attend a Title I public school in a beautiful, rural town in North Carolina. All economic levels are represented. For many students, English is their second language.

Our state has adopted the Common Core Curriculum which has integrated Science, Technology and Math into all parts of the daily curriculum. Our community is close, with parents willing to do whatever it takes to give their children a good education. I would like for my students to learn math through hands on, cooperative learning projects.

My Project

My students need math buddy items such as Wipe and Write Number Lines, Magnetic Coins, Base Ten manipulatives, and Student Clocks to obtain an understanding of numbers.

I am very excited about having hands-on, minds-on math buddy activities that will reinforce my students' knowledge of the basic math facts that are necessary to learn in order to achieve success in higher ordered real life word problems.

Students will have a buddy and practice the concepts and objectives needed for first grade using these engaging and colorful base ten manipulatives and dice. Buddies will also be able to work through math problems of all complexity using the number lines. The clocks are a great learning tool and help students learn and remember time. The magnetic coins will give buddies a chance to work with real life math problems involving money.Students will benefit from these materials by building on their math skills.
