My Students

My class is made up of 30 students from a low social-economic area. They are all English Learners, including five students who are considered to be newcomers, (just moved to Arizona from out of the country within the last five months). The students are eager to learn but have limited resources at home to practice their learning. They have great attitudes and overall behavior. As 4th graders, they are funny and starting to understand sarcasm. They enjoy listening to stories and relating their own experiences to the stories.

My students work hard, trying to do their best with the limited help they are able to get from home.

Most of their parents are second language learners also, with their primary language being Spanish and are not able to assist in all areas of their academic growth.

My Project

I am asking for a variety of math resources that will make a difference in my students' learning because they will have the opportunity to check-out the materials and bring them home to practice. Any and all hands-on experiences for these students is important.

Most of my students are unable to purchase materials for home and need extra incentive to practice on their own and these materials will give them that opportunity.

Also, these materials will be used in the classroom for guided practice and independent practice. Anytime my students can do hands-on practice, that gives them more exposure to the math and make real world connections. When they have these connections, then they are more excited for the next step of learning.
