My Students

My 46 4th grade students come from a variety of different economic backgrounds and attend an ethnically diverse school.

They speak a multitude of languages including English, Spanish, Portuguese and Arabic.

They attend a Title I school where they are receiving free breakfast and lunch. Unfortunately, this means that many of our parents do not have the finances to provide all the resources that students may need.

As diverse as our students are economically and culturally, they are diverse in their academics as well. Some of these students have been displaced because of Hurricane Maria in their country and have now entered my classroom needing hands on resources to increase their motivation for learning and overcome language barriers among other challenges they are facing .

They are all eager and hard working students and the newcomers have been displaced from their homes because of the disaster of hurricane Maria. As a teacher I feel the responsibility to create a fun, uninhibited, classroom environment that is conducive to learning and to give them the opportunity to be engaged by providing hands experiences to enhance their learning experience and ensure their success.

My Project

These math games will be used everyday and, will be great hands-on learning tools for my students to practice new math skills and review what they already know such as addition, subtraction, division and multiplication. The power pens will build math skills—with instant reinforcement! Kids just touch an answer with the special pen and the pen tells them if they’re right or wrong. The dry erase lap boards will help save paper and have the students give me instant feedback during problem solving so in that way I can support them immediately in their learning. The games such as BINGO will provide fun math activities for students. These fast-paced bingo games provide skill-building practice with challenging math concept developing mental math skills and reinforcing fractions, decimals, geometry and more. Not only will they continue to motivate and enhance my students' interest and their love of math, but they will also push them academically and encourage deep critical thinking skill and help to prepare for standardized test. In addition, these resources will give them exposure to all math standards, including measurement and data, operations and algebraic thinking, fractions, numbers in base ten, and geometry. Lastly, your donations will also help to engage and create meaningful experiences for all learners.(ESE,ELL)

With your help, I will incorporate these math games into my daily instruction and be able provide my students with a solid math foundation as well as instill in them a love for math.

Thank you!
