My Students

It breaks my heart to see that many of my students struggle with the basic math skills of number sense and finding the strategies to problem solve and become discouraged in math.

My students are finding working on their math outside using nature is exciting and fun!

Many of my students are learning math in English which is a second language, making the skills more difficult. To enhance our learning we go outside and work on our math skills together. At Piper we have an outdoor classroom where we practice math using nature. Our outdoor classroom is a great place for my students to learn math and then they can apply the math skills in their own backyard.

My students need tools to practice math skills daily to create math habits that will build their math skills and confidence. These math skills will be the basis for their future success in math.

My Project

These whiteboards, markers and paper will enhance math skills and give students a creative way to show math understanding. Students write problems and play showdown in which they show the answer rather than yelling out answers. This gives every student the opportunity to answer math questions and gives me an easy assesment tool. In addition, my classroom uses flexible seating and these supplies will allow my students to move anywhere in the classroom to work. Students can sit on the floor, in special seating or outside. Our school has an outside classroom and seating. The whiteboards, markers and paper can be used to take our math outside to work problems, illustrate understanding and add measurements of plants. Outside these supplies will be used during class and at recess for many years to come.
