My Students

I teach 50 AMAZING 4th graders math and science. They are exploring, hands on mathematicians and engineers. They love hands on activities and learning through exploring. They want to do things on their own and I want to make sure they are able to complete all the tasks I give them on their own. In order to do this I am instilling in them to work hard and ask questions. And everyday they show me they are working towards this goal!

My Project

Math is a great subject to learn and teach! The students learn how numbers work whether it’s arithmetic, fractions, decimals, or measurement. Using new and inventive ways to teach is a great way to keep the students engaged and these games and manipulatives will help with that. I teach math in centers. Each group meets with me and goes over the main concept while the other students work in small groups on related concepts. These games and maniplulatives would allow the students hands on games that would require little to no preparation. This would allow me to spend time finding creative ways to teach the main concept of the lesson.
