My Students

I have a really great classroom of students this year, filled with amazing children with great personalities. I enjoy our daily interactions: from the stories of the tooth fairy antics over at one girl’s house to the energetic stories of everyday life from another. I also have two boys who have awesome imaginations that they share each day. Then there are those students whose only positive words come from me. I work to create a safe environment for my kiddos.

My Project

In this day and age, it can be difficult to not only motivate students to want to learn math skills like adding, subtracting and using place value, but also to engage them in the learning and make it enjoyable. Finding inviting and exciting games and manipulatives like that catch the child's attention and assist them on there journey of learning can be difficult.

Research has proven that the more interested a child is in a topic or subject, the more likely they will engage in the learning.

This being said, providing games and manipulatives such as Light 'N' Strike and Word's Out that interest the children is integral to motivating them in the learning.
