I am a fifth grade teacher at Watkin-Nance Elementary school, and I really love teaching math!! Watkin-Nance Elementary School is located in Columbia, South Carolina. Our school is a Title I school, and 98% of our students receive free or reduced lunch. The area from which my students come is a high poverty, high crime area. Because of this, I feel that it is my job to be an excellent teacher (not just good). It is also my job to prepare them for college, which is why we are known as the College Bound High Achievers. I have developed an activity that requires students to give me instant feedback on any given math skill, and it is called interactive math. I present a problem on the board, and the students solve the problem as I walk around and analyze the various ways they solve them or errors that they have made. Because students can speak to each other in simpler ways that help them understand, I then allow them to use their "close partners" (peer assistants) to provide input on the way to solve the problem or they look at common student-errors. For this past year, we have used scrap pieces of paper in order to accomplish this activity. This is both messy and environmentally unfriendly. Therefore, we would like a class set of mini dry erase boards and markers in order to eliminate these problems and increase learning.
