Help me give my students the tools they need to be active participants in their learning. Hand held white board paddles will let all of my students answer questions rather than just the first hand raised.
My students are a diverse group of learners! They speak many different languages and come from a variety of cultures. The one thing they have in common is that they all want to feel safe, secure, and successful as citizens and learners. My school is 100% free and reduced lunch. My families work very hard to provide for their children, yet funding extras like school supplies is often not possible. I do not want this to hinder their learning gains.
When the teacher asks a question, everyone should have the opportunity to answer and share their thinking. Hand held white boards and wipe off pocket folders are two great ways to get all the students involved, not just the ones who raise their hands first. My English language learners are not always confident speaking out in class. These items will help build their confidence and allow me to know what they are thinking.
Using magnetic fraction circles and fraction rulers will help me model the conceptual meaning behind equivalent fractions and allow my students to explore and learn what is often a confusing concept.
Please help my students get the materials they need to become math masters!
