My Students

I work at a school with a diverse population. I have English Learners, students from low income households, first generation Americas, children of migrant workers, refugees, foster children and homeless, just to name a few types. Many of my students get free breakfast and lunch.

For many of my students, school is their safe and happy place.

My students come with all different strengths and interests. I spend my school year working with each individual student to help them feel valued and heard. I do a lot of differentiation to help students stay engaged.

My students bring a lot to the classroom and make it their own. Each group is entirely different than the previous. I love challenging myself and them to push each other to do things they never thought possible. My goal is for my students to love learning and commit to becoming life long learners.

My Project

A lot takes place in math during the third grade year. Students are learning multiplication, division, and fractions all in a short period of time. Students are building on math concepts that they learn throughout the year.

Learning through play and hands on experiences makes a more lasting impression.

These math manipulatives are great hands on tools. They will help the students that need a little more one on one support. Many students learn well through game play. I am really excited to get the fraction games in my classroom. It is amazing to see how much sense math concepts make, when they are structured in a fun way. The fraction cubes will also be helpful to the students who need a concrete visual and are not great at creating their own equal part drawings, which is what our curriculum provides. Students also will be able to become more independent by using the sand timers to time each other while practicing their multiplication facts. This will allow me to spend more time working with the students who need extra support.
