My Students

The school is located in an urban community, with a high rate of poverty. We have up to 30 students in every classroom each year. My goal is that the students become a community of learners and help each other grow. I try to teach my students through many different learning styles. We use hands-on tools, technology, books, videos, and more. We work in partners and small groups regularly, and students really work together to help each other be successful.

My students come from a variety of home situations, so they are learning academic and social skills in all subjects.

When my students go home, they do not all get the same academic support. This makes it extremely important to do anything I can during the school day to help them foster the love of learning.

My Project

My primary math students often struggle with a basic understanding of numbers. My intermediate students struggle with larger concepts, because they missed the strong foundation. I want to build their number sense by exposing them to tools that help them understand numbers with 5, 10, 20 and up to 100. A Rekenrek is a tool that allows students to easily manipulate beads to represent numbers. It is color coded so that the students can work within a group of 5, or up to 10 on each row. I am asking for some larger models so that we can work with numbers up to 100, and some smaller models so that the students can solidify their understanding of numbers 1-20.

When the students understand the meaning of 10, it can open the doors for them to understand how other math concepts make sense!

A strong foundation leads them to understand future concepts like, addition, subtraction, decimals, place value, and more!
