My students are amazing. I wish I could provide them with all the supplies, materials, and essentials this world has to offer. I want them to be successful not only in my Common Core Math 1 classroom but also in their future. Although we have just begun the school year I can already sense that this year is going to be remarkable.
There will be great math puzzles, activities, and games that challenge students to think and go further than they ever thought possible.
I will challenge the quiet students to speak up and voice their opinions, because what they have to say matters. I will challenge the problem solvers to come up with explanations and justifications using words. I will challenge those with little math confidence to not be afraid of making mistakes and to always ask questions.
Graph paper is one of the most essential supplies in a math classroom! Students must be able to show their work algebraically, graphically, and at times even in more abstract ways.
Graph paper will allow students to explore math problems in a more accurate and exact way.
Graph paper is usually something that students do not carry as it hardly ever makes it to their school supply shopping list. The graph paper will be placed in a basket around the classroom so students can help themselves to it as needed. It is important to be able to provide students with as many resources as possible so they can be successful.
