My Students

The students at my school bring joy and happiness to the classroom every day. They are hard working and love to share their ideas. The students at this school love hands-on learning and working together to solve real world problems.

My Project

Everyone has an individual approach to their best form of learning. Math can be intimidating at any age, and my students will be introduced to some new concepts, like algebra, that can seem daunting.

The materials in this project will help ease students' anxieties when learning new concepts in math.

Many of the students in my building love learning using a hands-on approach. The algebra tiles in this project are a game changer, and can help make sense of what can be a confusing new topic. Graph-printed white boards will help my students by taking away the stress of drawing a graph over and over again, they can now focus on the task at hand. Polyhedral dice are a great way to change things up in the classroom and can be used in a variety of ways.
