My Students

Just keep moving! Our classroom motto for this year describes exactly how we all feel. The pandemic has put a wrench in our educational flow, and it’s time for us to move forward.

Our classroom is filled with a diverse group of fervent kinesthetic learners ranging from 9 to 10 years of age.

This year has been a challenge for my students. The pandemic hit in very pivotal years of their education. In the first year of the pandemic my students had to learn 2nd grade skills outside of a normal classroom setting. Ever since then they have been playing catch-up.

My Project

Most of us remember growing up in a time when we had to use our hands and imagination to help us learn. My goal for this project is to bring hands-on learning into my classroom by using math manipulatives along with the cooperation of technology to increase my student’s comprehension of math concepts. These hands-on materials will be used as a tangible tool to help my students with place value, fractions, measuring, time, modeling multiplication and many other purposes.

Teaching students of today’s generation requires instructional exercises and activities that are innovative, interesting, and meet their learning needs.

Supporting this project will empower me to engage my students in math activities that are meaningful and gratifying. This project will include activities that will improve my student’s mathematical comprehension which will in turn allow them to create a solid foundation of math concepts to better prepare them for the future.
