Help me give my students more ways to interact with concepts! This is about making learning magnetic and engaging- 2 large magnetic whiteboards and a selection of magnetic manipulatives and breakout boxes to support learning in math.
The students in my school are fantastic! They are all working hard to learn English and learn grade level standards in all subject areas as well! Our school has over 800 students from grades preK-5.
Over 95% of my students receive free and reduced meals and 60% of my students are active English learners.
I'm a math specialist and I work with small student groups in all 3rd,4th and 5th grade math classrooms. The students I work with generally have gaps in their understanding and are working to build their number sense.
These supplies will be used to support our entire fourth grade team- about 100 students in total, and the magnetic manipulatives and breakout boxes will be available for our third and fifth grade teams to use as well, increasing the project to almost 300 students.
Our fourth and fifth grade classrooms are in a portable megapod without magnetic surfaces, and these boards will allow teachers to model math concepts and engage students in modeling the concepts.
Part of the board will also be used to organize small groups for instruction.
Having additional surfaces in the room for teachers/students to work on will be so helpful this year!
