Mrs. Scarpitta from Yuma AZ is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Gather Round for Messy Math Groups

My students need a white board table that students can work directly on so it adds to the fun of showing our work.

My Students

My students are high-achieving students at a Title l school (100% free/reduced-price lunch) They are eager to learn and work hard. Many are second language learners. They want to show what they know and shine. Many students will show in the regional (SARSEF) and AZ state (AzSEF) science and engineering festivals. Some receive awards and recognition every year.

We are learning to have personal responsibility.

We have iPads, which we treat like our own babies. My students have great ideas and will be future leaders in the community. We work best when we can collaborate with each other.

My Project

Would you rather learn and solve new math concepts... at a desk in isolation from others... OR at a whiteboard table with a few classmates to work with? Research shows higher achievement levels in students who are able to discuss, collaborate, and move around. Active participation is necessary for learning to take place.

I am requesting a marker board activity table so students can feel free to get messy as they work out the steps to math problems, map out their thinking, and share problem-solving strategies with classmates.

My students love to work collaboratively as it gives them the opportunity to learn from each other and gain valuable interpersonal, communication, and collaboration skills.

Sometimes we need to pull small groups for extra help. This center table will also allow me to give extra attention to those who need help. They will still be able to work with others, and enjoy the privilege of extra instruction.

All kids like writing on the desk. This innovative engagement strategy really helps kids make mistakes, correct each other, and find fun in the messy learning process.
