My Students

My students have had a really hard year. At the beginning of the year they had a teacher who was here for nine days before realizing she had leukemia. She went home to work on getting better. They had around 10 subs for the first half of the year waiting for their first teacher to come back. When her sickness became worse they hired me right out of student teaching in December. Their first teacher just passed away in February.

This year has been a lot of change and turmoil for my class but they are still positive about education.

Many of them work very hard to stay caught up with the fifth grade curriculum for the year despite all the changes. They are amazing, happy, and willing to learn. They especially love STEM projects; in the picture provided you can see one of the results of our electricity unit. These students are truly a joy and I'd love to make the classroom a better place for them.

My Project

My students are amazing but they struggle sometimes with understanding ideas based on a drawing or a number. I've noticed that when I use random items in the class they grasp the bigger picture so much faster, especially when it comes to fractions. It is for this reason that I asked for mathematic manipulatives.

A hands-on experience is just what they need to grasp the math concepts that we are learning about now, and to review in preparation for 6th grade.

These students care about their education and I know that having items like fraction strips, counters, base ten blocks, and unifix cubes will help them and future students that enter this classroom understand fractions.
