Go Figure, Math Can Be Fun!

My Students

Posted on my wall you will see, "The essence of mathematics is not to make simple things complicated, but to make complicated things simple," S. Gudder. My students know that I don't expect perfection, I just expect their best effort in everything.

I have a class full of bright, enthusiastic, hard working, dedicated 4th graders.

I absolutely love my students and want all the best for them. Most of my students do not lack resources to assist them at home, however I lack a lot of resources in the classroom. I would love for my students to have activities and centers to work on rather than worksheets while I work with struggling students.

My Project

Math centers and activities are fantastic for early finishers, students that may not need me during small groups, or even when they are just done with an assessment and they need something to do. These resources provide all of that and make it easy for me to provide that for them. The new Common Core Standards require students to complete rigorous work and the centers that I have chosen allow students to do that in a fun, imaginative, real life way. My students need math centers so they are able to master skills as they work in math and as I am working in small groups. The math centers will make math more fun and help students enjoy learning. Math centers will also help them make connections to concepts in math and increase their understanding as they develop their skills. Students can receive interventions or extensions depending on their needs, which is the beauty of the centers.

Thank you in advance for your wonderful contribution.

I will assure you that the centers will be used wisely in our class. We will be sharing these with all future students and they will be loved by so many students. Thank you for helping our future students be a priority of today.
