My Students

I teach middle school math to about 95 students in a small school district. My classes include students who are in a 5th grade accelerated math class and a regular 6th grade math class. I also see a variety of other middle school students at the end of the day during our advisory time.

My students will all have a block period of math this year where they will have extra time to really explore concepts and think deeper about topics and their understanding.

Roughly 50% of our middle school population is on free or reduced lunch. Our middle school is connected to our high school, and the elementary school is very close.

My Project

I see a wide range of middle school students throughout the day. Some love math and some are more uncomfortable with the subject. During class they sit in regular desks to take notes and work together as a class. However, we are lucky enough to now have a block period for math class. During this second block I like to give my students time to work together cooperatively and to explore their understandings of various topics. They learn best by doing and having experiences where they can interact with numbers, explore new ideas and work together to solve a problem. We have fun and do hands on activities and I try to let them move about the room.

Dry erase tables will be a great tool for them to use when working together, and the flexible seating options will be a much needed break from sitting in a regular desk.

During lab time I am working with a small group at an instructional table at the front of the room. The other students are working at various centers spread around the room. Right now they are still sitting in their desks, or spread out on the floor. A variety of seating options will be a nice change of pace for them, and help those who need to be able to fidget and move around (without being a distraction to others). The dry erase tables will give students the opportunity to collaborate and work together on a large surface.
