My students are mainly from an English as a Second Language (ESL) population. They are eager to learn new things. More than 75% of our students receive free lunch. Over 20% are homeless. Our school teaches bell to bell and has an extended day.
Every time I teach math, the students are eager to learn, but sometimes it's hard because we don't have all the materials we would like to teach a certain concept or skill.
In today's world, the students need to problem solve and be able to think out of the box.
This project will allow students to do just that. Every time we do math, my students are filled with excitement and awe when we do something new and fun!
This project will allow for the students to become more fluent in their grade level math skills. A lot of times students are told to memorize facts in order to become successful, with this kit, it will allow for teachers to be able to teach fluency skills with ease, especially if they struggled with this in the past. These ETA hand-2-mind kits will be a great addition to the math resource area and will allow grade level teachers to have more interactive and research based activities to teach fluency for the students. These will help the students gain fluency at their grade level, or at other grade levels if that is needed!
