My 8th grade math students love to learn! They always come to class with a smile on their face and wanting to know, "What are we learning today?" My students really care about their education and love to learn in new and exciting ways. They are eager to ask questions and try to make sense of the concepts we are covering in math.
My students use technology every day in math class.
Access to technology will help me as a teacher to help my students develop their math skills.
The materials I am requesting will help my students academically through technology and practice.
During math lessons, I give direct instruction while students take notes to create understanding and make connections with other concepts.
An iPad will allow me to wander around the room while I teach, allowing me to get out of the board in front and blocking the notes as I write. I will also be able to record videos of the notes for students who are quarantined at home with COVID-19. We are back and forth from remote learning to in-person learning, and having an iPad with all these capabilities will help to keep the consistency in the classroom for my students, whether at home or school.
One of my goals this year is to keep my students engaged with math the whole class period. I have students who always seem to finish early. Teachers Pay Teachers has an incredible amount of resources from many different teachers. There are so many great resources for review, practice activities, enrichment, and other opportunities from TPT. A gift card to use on enrichment activities for my students will be such a wonderful asset to our classroom. My students are Honors students and often finish their classwork. I would love to buy some activities that they can go to as an early-finisher activity.
