My Students

The majority of students at our school come from a socioeconomically disadvantaged background. Many of our students do not have preschool experience, and some have never been read to at home. For many students, this is the first time they are socializing outside the familiar comfort of family.

My students like to learn about many things from books and real life experiences.

Books are a valuable tool that gives them the opportunity to use their imaginations and increase their knowledge about many new and different subjects. Most importantly, books help them get in touch with their feelings, opinions, and how they perceive their world and others.

My Project

Our class needs several math teaching tools to help us learn math. The giant magnetic rekenrek and jumbo magnetic ten frames will be used to teach math lessons in a whole group setting with both teacher and students showing how to solve word problems.

The ten frames class set would benefit students as a tool to help them solve word problems at their desk and the building math skills write and wipe boards can be used in a whole group activity on the carpet or used at their desk solving word problems independently.

These math tools would enhance student understanding because they are using visual, kinesthetic, and their own critical thinking skills on how to set up the correct mathematical operation to solve word problems. Students need to be exposed to a variety of math tools which will help them solve math problems in a clear and concise manner. Providing student choice on deciding how they want to solve and show their work is essential in building their own cognitive math abilities.
