Ms. Scheele from Burien WA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need literature about math topics to bring math to life!
My classroom is located in Washington state at a Title I school. Students at my school are hardworking, kind, eager individuals. Many students are first and second generation citizens from Africa, South America and Asia. About forty-two percent of students qualify for English Language Learner services, but up to fifty percent of students speak a language other than English in the home. Our differing cultures, backgrounds, economic statuses and languages provide richness in the classroom, but we also face challenges. One challenge is that we are incredibly underfunded. At our school, eighty-three percent of our students qualify for free or reduced price school lunch.
There are so many experiences and learning opportunities I wish I could have with our students if only I had the means.
Using literature in math lessons can enhance learning in many ways. It can help build an intangible perception of math skills through illustrations, as well as help students build problem-solving skills. In addition, it can provide a meaningful context for mathematical content, review mathematics concepts, promote the development of number sense, model interesting problems, promote critical thinking, and increase the level of interest.
Math becomes more interesting when a child can make a math connection in a story.
When children are reading or listening to a book, they learn to recognize that math is used all around them. Students begin to use their prior knowledge to connect math concepts to the outside world. Please help bring many amazing math titles into the hands of my students! Such books include Full House: An Invitation to Fractions, Divide and Ride, The Cartoon Guide to Statistics, Hidden Figures: The True Story of Four Black Women and the Space Race, Betcha! Estimating, and more….
