My Students

I have a wonderful group of first grade students who love to learn new things. This is my first year teaching at this school.

My students face many personal struggles yet come to school everyday ready to learn.

They know that room 8 is a safe, loving, and nurturing environment where we can have discussions, disagreements, and problem solve as a team!

All of my students plan to attend college in the future. We frequently talk about what needs to happen over the course of the next 12 school years in order for that to happen. Some of my students expressed their interest in having a career as a judge, nurse, game designer, and firefighter.

My Project

These center activities, ten frame white boards, and general classroom supplies will give my students extra opportunities to learn and practice number operations in base ten, measurement and data, geometry, place value, time, partitioning shapes, and simple addition and subtraction.

When students are given opportunities to practice these skills in a fun, non-graded environment with their peers, they develop the skills necessary to move to second grade along with the confidence to try a variety of strategies when solving number based and word problems.

Students who have the ability to work with another student and explain their thinking when it comes to problem solving are more likely to be come strong, successful, magnificent mathematicians. These students have a "problem solving toolbox" which helps them to tackle difficult problems knowing that they have a variety of strategies in their back pocket.
