My students are an active, diverse group of learners. Many of my students are second language learners who have reclassified, and school is the primary place they practice English.
The neighborhood is disadvantaged with 80% of children presently receiving free breakfast and/or lunch.
It is largely a Hispanic community with a rich culture and family traditions.
The children are excited about learning new things every day. They encourage and support each other. "Respectful, Responsible, and Safe" is our school's motto. We strive to do our best every day.
Third grade students are expected to learn multiplication, division, fractions, mental math strategies, and much more!
The ETA hand2mind Fluency Kit will help students develop multiple strategies to solve math problems.
For example, the "Math Talks" will provide opportunities for students to make connections in number relationships. The "Large Manipulatives" will help the teacher to demonstrate key concepts. The "Number Strings" includes 5 math related problems per day designed to teach strategies based on number relattionships. The Magnetic demonstration bead line will help to build fluency with mental math. The picture dot multiplication cards will be used to practice and visualize multiplication facts and related division fact families.
There are many great learning tools provided in this kit for teacher and student use!
