Each year I'm blessed with a class filled with great students that are eager to learn. They are so excited to be a third grader. Third graders are amazing and they learn so much! My students always try their best and have a strong desire to succeed. They are hard workers and deserve the best opportunity to succeed.
Each year I strive to learn about my students' unique personalities and their strengths and weaknesses.
Every student learns differently. I feel that it's important to meet as many learning styles as I can.
I also feel that it is important to give my students a variety of learning experiences. My students enjoy learning through different activities. These learning activities and experiences make a deeper impact and are what students remember most.
I love getting students excited about math! I want them to see how math applies to their daily lives. My entire goal is to have math make sense! One of the best ways to do this is to make it engaging.
Math instruction is much more effective when students can manipulate materials while learning new concepts.
I currently have one set of fraction tiles for my classroom. This set includes 10 trays of tiles. I love having this resource. However, it would even better if every student in my class could utilize their own tray!
Allowing each student to have their own tray during instruction, would create more engagement and opportunities for teaching and reteaching in my classroom. Students will be able to show me their individual levels of understanding. It will also allow each student the ability to show me the way they think as they solve problems about fractions.
