My Students

My students are innovative, reflective and analytical! They enjoy hands-on, interactive, engaging assignments and projects that allow them to think critically to find solutions! They are the reason I enjoy being a Math Interventionist! Every child is excited to work on developing their mathematics skills.

Our school is a Title I school, which means a majority of our children come from low socioeconomic backgrounds.

Our school is in its second year of operation which has greatly impacted the supplies I am able to provide for my classroom. However, my students are eager and hungry to learn! Students in my classroom have difficulty completing grade-level assignments because of the lack of mathematical manipulatives and resources. They have appreciated the Concrete-Representational-Abstract (CRA) instructional method which introduces intervention content with manipulatives before presenting the abstract concept.

My Project

Studies show that students learn when they become responsible for their learning. Think about the student who can use these manipulatives to grasp a math concept or to problem solve, then use them to explain the idea to a friend! These math manipulatives will provide not only the foundation of many math concepts but allow students to explore and expand their knowledge for a higher order of thinking!

Math is a critical need area, and these manipulatives are just the thing to help get my students on the right track.

My students must keep up with the latest advancements in education to spark an interest in mathematics. Education is changing every single day, and so are the interest of my students. Students in my classroom must receive instruction that incorporates visual and kinesthetic elements.

The manipulatives selected such as the Elementary Math Manipulative Library will accommodate hands-on interactive for tasks like addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division for 2nd and 3rd-grade scholars in our school building. The Solve, Flip & Check practice cards can serve as math centers for scholars while they are receiving intervention at various grade levels. Students who use these manipulatives find math fun and begin to use manipulatives more for enjoyment!

Helping students begin to learn that math is fun is the perfect way to build better mathematicians and engineers. Manipulatives are a gateway to better mathematics skills for reluctant scholars. My students will love getting their hands on colorful manipulatives.
