Keep Our Math Class Magical!

My students need measurement, fraction, addition, subtraction, and problem solving centers to use during math workshop in our classroom.

My Students

Do you remember what your math class was like? Did your teacher stand in front of the class and talk the whole time? I no longer want to bore my students. I want to change the way math is taught in my classroom!

I have 34 low income English Language Learners in my classroom.

My students work hard and pay attention during their center time because they like to walk around and be responsible for their own learning. I have noticed that they get very squirmy and lose interest in math because they have to stay in their seats and listen to me talk for most of the time during class.

My Project

I would like to use a math workshop approach in my classroom. My students would sit through a ten minute lesson and then do their work independently. When they are finished with their work they will be able to go to math centers. During this time I will be able to pull small groups of students that need me to reinforce the lesson or a group that needs me to challenge them further. I need these materials because they are the core of our math curriculum. My students really need to master addition and subtraction in first grade. The materials I am requesting such as the addition and subtraction fact cards and math machines are used to reinforce the skills taught in class. Best of all, these materials are meant for the students to use them independently and are self checking so I can really work with small math groups without any interruptions.

This project is so important because I have a lot of different levels of math competency in my classroom.

It is hard to challenge my advanced learners while at the same time reviewing skills that students need more support in. It is hard to give every student the attention they need with a class size of 33. Through math workshop my students will individually receive the support they need from me.
