My Students

I am currently in my 15th year of teaching, but my first year in 8th grade in a small urban district. My students come from various backgrounds and for many of them, school is their “safe” place. I have learned so much about life from my 8th graders! Every child is valued for their unique personality as well as being an important member of our team! Our class includes a wide range of learning styles and abilities and those differences are both acknowledged and celebrated.

My Project

A large part of 8th grade math is learning about the coordinate grid and graphing without the use of a calculator. The large classroom grids will help to show my students how to graph more easily than simply using an overhead projector. They will allow the students to be more hands-on in the learning process. The markerboard, the Jumbo Magnetic Coordinate grid, and the June Gold Dry Erase Markers will allow students the opportunity to more easily see how to graph on a coordinate axis and give them the chance to try it on a scale that is easier to work with! Also, the pencils will allow the students the opportunity to erase because many of them only have pens.

I have found with the population of students in my classes, the more involved they can be in the lesson, the better they comprehend.

Graphing is a very important topic for the students to be fluent in math because they will continue to use graphing through the rest of their education.
