My 6th grade students are learning about topics in math that are essential in life. For example, my students recently learned about decimals. These students showed a great deal of interest in decimals because of money. We used pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters for adding and subtracting decimals. They loved this part of the lesson
My students are eager to learn and love to explore new topics.
They ask tons of questions and make great strides in comprehending new material. Everyday my students remind me why I love to teach.
Most students lose some content knowledge throughout the years due to the lack of practice and daily use of the material they have been taught. The students that have an education gap have a disadvantage to succeeding in math. My goal is to help fill these gaps by providing extra material based upon the needs of the student. By doing this, more students will have a better chance at succeeding.
My classroom could benefit from the Chromebooks by allowing more students to use an online system that helps me as a teacher pinpoint a student’s weakness in different areas of math.
I do not have enough computers to help all of my 111 students better succeed in my classroom. The Chromebooks will allow me to help fill the education gap for most students and create a bridge so that everyone has the chance to succeed. My students deserve the best from me, and I believe the Chromebooks will help me give the students right material they need.
