My Students

School has not started yet, and I am going to be a new teacher to this school (and a first year teacher of my own classroom!). But if these students are anything like those while I was student teaching, they are inquisitive, and LOVE exploration in math. They do not like worksheets, or following the "I do, we do, you do" model. Instead, they like to be hands on and learn the material in a way that is fun and meaningful to each of them.

My Project

Hello everyone! This will be my first year as a teacher and I need your help to get some of the supplies that my students will need. I currently do not have any supplies, so everything helps! I will be teaching two grade levels in middle school, so these materials will go a long way and have multiple uses! I spent a lot of time comparing prices on multiple websites and found the best deal on each item, to ensure that the money raised is well spent.

I requested double sided whiteboards and whiteboard markers for full class participation in answering mathematical questions in a novel and engaging way.

I requested meter/yard sticks, rulers, and protractors so that students learn how to use mathematical tools effectively.

I requested large post-it posters so that we could write key notes for each unit as a class, and post them around the room for a quick "go-to" reference for the students.

I requested antibacterial wipes to keep the room clean and germ free.

I requested pencils and erasers for students who may have forgotten (or do not have) the required writing materials needed for proper learning.
