My Students

Who has ever played with a jump rope on the playground? And who has ever had to solve a difficult math problem? We all have! I would to have the materials readily available that will allow me to teach my students to problem solve in real world ways.

My students live in a low-income area.

They mostly receive free meals. Some of them come from great, supportive families. Others do not. It's not enough to provide these students to access to worksheets and paper and pencils. My students are students who are willing to learn. They simply need the resources and someone who is willing to teach them.

My Project

I would love to be the person who is able to my students make sense of difficult math problems using fun, familiar tools. I have been inspired to Stuart J. Murphy's book called Earth Day Hooray! I would like to also inspire my students to problem solve using active and engaging lessons. My students will be able to create tally charts after hula hooping or practice addition after throwing bean bags at a target.

These resources will make learning math more fun.

That's the bottom line. Every student can learn, and they are most able to learn when they engaged in real world situations that are both fun and educational.
