My Students

My students come into the classroom eager to learn! They are becoming independent and really starting to read to learn.

My classroom is full of 3rd graders ready to continue their learning journey.

They come from a variety of backgrounds with varying abilities. They strive to keep growing in their educational journey. They are starting to be able to read to learn and expand their math skills. They are proud of themselves when they accomplish something new or something they have been struggling with.

My Project

My students love learning new things! They are used to a lot of screen time from tablets and video games at home that when they come to school they are excited to have manipulatives or games to play without a screen. This allows them to help master new math standards while learning important social skills with their peers.

Math manipulatives such as clocks, geoboards, measuring tapes, and games will allow my students to learn about real-life situations and problems using these manipulatives.

Math manipulatives can be used in small group, whole group, or independently. Please help my students gain the materials they need to help them grow as learners.
