Glow Party Math: Memorable Math using Black lights!

Help me give my students black lights, LED strip lights, and highlighters so that we can have a fun Math GLOW Party with prizes!

My Students

Our students come from high poverty, but it does not stop them from being eager to learn. We are a Title I school, and we are a free lunch campus. They are an exceptional group of students.

I truly have a great group of kids.

They work really hard and have such amazing personalities. They are very resilient, caring, and supportive of one another. I told them at the beginning of the year that we're a family, and they have carried that with them. They often remind their classmates that we are a family and that we need to look out for one another. I feel honored to know them and to get to spend so much time with them, encouraging, supporting, motivating, and reassuring them.

We thank you for your support and we look forward to share with you updates on our progress.

My Project

I recently read about Black Light Math Glow Parties and I was inspired. I've talked to other teachers who have turned their classrooms into a fun place to work on multiplication facts, addition/subtraction, division, fractions, geometry, and more using black lights and highlighters. I believe that if we make learning fun, it will inspire students to work hard and achieve success. I hope to have fun on Fridays by turning the classroom into a party to practice our Math facts and Math skills. In addition to the Glow Party, our class treasure box is nearly empty. I have requested toys and snacks to help me encourage my kids to pass their Math lessons, score high on benchmarks, and complete their homework. I know that it is best to intrinsically motivate children, but I have seen them work really hard to earn a bag of chips or a fidget spinner. I want them to enjoy the rewards of their hard work, and I need more prizes to do that. I love these students and I want them to love school and learning as much as I do!
