Like many classrooms, my students vary greatly in their needs and abilities from struggling to gifted. My students come from a variety of backgrounds. Every day I work to instill a sense of community within them. We have become a family and like family, we support each other in the good times and the bad.
My class is made up of a community of risk takers.
I acknowledge my mistakes openly because I want my students to be persistent risk takers willing to try, even at the risk of public failure. As a teacher, I am helping to shape whole people and that stretches beyond academics. The drive to learn, interest in the world, ability to cooperate, and willingness to either give or receive help are just a few of the skills needed to be successful in the future.
Helping students recognize patterns with numbers and many other foundational skills in math. Math is ever present in the learning and life of students. This helps even the playing field for students that don't have the same exposure to numbers. It will allow them to see numbers in a variety of ways and develop the deeper understanding needed for successful interaction with math throughout the rest of their lives. This Daily Fluency Kit will give them a consistent resource for practice and includes the manipulatives necessary for hands on learning that helps young children make lasting connections with mathematical ideas.
