My Students

My 6th grade students come from a wide variety of backgrounds - different towns, socioeconomic states, races and religions. What they all have in common is the ability to be excellent thinkers. By the time these students reach me, many of then think

My students are entering their first year of middle school and last year in a non-grouped math class.

It is my job to untangle the myth about a math brain and prepare each student for their future classes. I want them to see that being a good thinker will help them in all of their classes.

My Project

Colorful charts and paper will help bring lessons and student products to life. Bulletin board decorations with a CAN DO message reminds students that they can do anything if they are willing to try - even if the task is difficult.

Dry erase film will be used to create tables where students can work.

It is amazing how excited children are to write on a table. My old surface was worn out so I had to remove it. The class will be thrilled to have it back. Reluctant learners love to get help as long as it involves a marker.
