Making Math Easel!

My students need an easel to help them succeed in math. In order to best reach each student at their level, we use guided math rotations to learn math concepts.

My Students

My class is a class of 32 enthusiastic learners who come from a variety of cultures and backgrounds. The majority of my students receive free or reduced price lunch and many of them have already experienced homelessness at one point in their lives. Our classroom is our home away from home. We all come together as a community for lessons and fun activities. However, our resources are limited. We are in need of tools to help meet the needs of each individual learner in our classroom.

In our classroom, we are one big family and we are part of a larger school community.

Some students struggle with daily academic skills, especially those students who find traditional learning activities difficult or who are learning English as their second language. This year, our school is starting a STEM initiative through the use of project based learning opportunities. This will help the students to grow their problem solving skills in a hands-on way with real-world experiences. It will help them to build their cooperative learning skills and become outside the box thinkers. My students need the option of fun, alternative activities and lessons to support their learning styles.

My Project

This magnetic easel would help my students to be engaged and interact with our magnetic math manipulatives during small group, guided math lessons. This approach to teaching math has benefitted my students greatly and they have show so much growth since second grade.

The best way to reach students and help them to succeed is to meet them at their level.

By using this easel to deliver engaging, hands on math lessons to small groups of students daily, it will help them to build their critical thinking and problem solving skills during math. Help my students get the materials they need to help them become mathematical thinkers and problem solvers!
