My Students

Our school is located in Cleveland, Ohio. We are considered a low-income school where most of our students receive free or reduced-price lunch meals. Our school does not have tuition. We also provide school supplies for the students. This helps us to make sure all students have the appropriate supplies needed.

I teach third-grade math and social studies for 48 students.

We have a rotating schedule, so I see every student each day. Some days are easier than others!

This is my first year teaching math in 10 years! Being online teaching math has been a challenge! I am looking for tools that can help me teach my students with ease so they will be able to focus on what is being taught, rather than what I am using to teach it.

My Project

Some students have a difficult time listening in class due to the need to move around. These students find other things to occupy themselves. Many times I find paper clips, ripped paper, or erasers on the floor that have been manipulated into smaller pieces!

Using these materials during instruction time, will allow students to be able to "fidget" while they work or listen.

It will give them the power to fidget while being alert to what is being said and taught to them.

Although we are back in the classroom, many students are still having a hard time adjusting from their free-moving home schooling to a more structured in-school learning. They cannot move around in school as much as they did at home. These materials will give some of that freedom to move, even if it is just with their hands or feet!
