My Students

My students really love math-a rarity, I know! They like taking our topics and doing multi-day projects or presentations on them. My students come in to school with so much energy and love to engage in more activity-based learning.

They really love when math class involves games, crafts or any kind of project!

During these lessons, I get to know my students so much better and see their personalities come out in their work. So many of them are creative and hard working, and I love being able to bring that out.

My Project

Last week we were lucky enough to have some bouncy bands, cubby nooks and stress balls donated to our classroom. These helped my students tremendously! Many of them struggle to maintain focus if they are not actively moving around the classroom.

These materials made a huge difference after we tried using them during class!

The bouncy bands specifically were a favorite among students. During class, I walked around the room and watched as students who usually stood up to stretch or move around multiple times a period did not need to do that all class! They were focused on our project and stayed put longer than I have seen all year.

We only introduced four of them into our classroom, and we would love to have a few more added so more students can benefit from these as their peers did!
