My Students

A typical day in my class consists of happy, very active 5-year-olds running around wanting to learn about everything. We work very hard but still try to make learning fun for them. The biggest challenge is supplies as my school is a Title I, which means that our families cannot afford to buy them. Even though my students do not speak much English this does not keep them from wanting to learn. This makes math a tough subject for them but does not keep them from trying. My school is a Title I school which means that most of our students are on a free lunch program and most of their parents do not have extra money to spend on supplies and even though our school spends what money they can on materials. Materials that will make learning fun for the students are still needed in the classroom.

My Project

The construction paper will be used to to create visual math representations that will be put on our bulleting work to display their math knowledge.

The materials will be used to help make learning to count to 100 fun and interactive.

This is important as most of my students do not speak English and find math to be their hardest subject to master.

The dice will be used to help students come up with addition and subtractions problems without having dice flying all over the place. This helps them to come up with probles without spending too much time coming up with problems.
