Hooray! This project is fully funded
I teach 28 amazing fifth grade students in my classroom. Since my class is moving on to the middle school next year, we are really trying to focus on skills to make sure that they are successful for the big change.
In this classroom, we are working to become motivated, well-rounded students.
This means that we are always doing our best, showing respect and empathy to others, and never giving up. As we work in the classroom, we are building relationships and working collaboratively towards common goals. If others are struggling, we want to help build each other up!
Exploration and number sense are huge aspects of the learning in my math classes. With the help of several different types of math manipulatives, my students will be able to clearly represent the different operations that they are performing and improve their understanding. Every student's mind works in different ways, so having many ways to represent and explain your thinking are essential to developing a deeper understanding in math.
By donating to my project, you will be helping each and every one of my students develop independence and problem solving skills in math.
With tools like place value chips, number line task cards, and other number pieces, students will be able to physically show how they are regrouping division problems, adding and subtracting decimal values, or any other operation that they might come across in fifth grade!
