My Students

I teach in a low-economic school district with 75% of my students labeled as economically disadvantaged and 67% at risk of dropping out before graduation (TEA-TAPR). A majority of my students are enrolled in the English Language Learning Program and are in need of more visual ways of being taught to help learn math as it is a difficult concept that produces high levels of anxiety.

My students are eager to learn and grow in their mathematical journey each and every day; however, our lack of resources limits us.

My Project

To help provide engaging, meaningful lessons for my 8th grade math students, I implement Tabor Rotation and Guided Math stations in my class such as manipulative station, games station, independent/technology station, and teacher station. Currently, I am using student desks as a teacher station, but the surfaces don't erase quite well and the hands on activities continues to fall between the desks on the floor due to lack of student space which causes lost time of direct instruction.

A Horseshoe dry-erase table allows my students to receive guided, direct instruction with immediate feedback in my teacher station.

Math fact fluency, mathematical annotations, and collaborative interactions are just a few items that will be achieved with a dry-erase table in my classroom.
