This year, my 5th graders come in very curious and eager to learn. My goal is to engage their learning by providing them with hands-on experiences. Another way I support my low-achieving students is by modifying my teaching style to ensure that I meet their learning needs.
My students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds with over 88% of our students receiving free or reduced-price lunch.
We provide Blessings in a Backpack to every student in the school. Every weekend, they take a bag of food home.
I'm always trying to find new ways to ensure that my students excel academically.
Build & Learn Geometry Kits will help my students visualize, build and manipulate geometric figures. Students can use sticks and connectors to compose, decompose and manipulate geometric figures from every angle. The kits will encourage students to use their models to help solve each problem on the activity cards. When they are finished, they can flip each card over to check their answers. It holds them accountable for their own learning.
While I am working with students in small groups, I need fun activities to keep the other students engaged and learning independently.
Measurement is one of those math skills that we use pretty much everyday. Hands-On Measurement Centers will help to reinforce measurement concepts. Students can measure and identify angles as well as explore and measure volume by using different manipulatives. Not only Write & Wipe Graphing Boards are great tools to reinforce graphing skills but as well as multiplication skills.
These activities will definitely keep my students engaged and learning while at math centers and allow continuous math growth.
