My Students

My students are enthusiastic, curious, critical thinkers. They are all very different. About a fourth of my students came to my class two years below grade level in reading. Several are in gifted and talented education and some are trying to learn English. However, they all share the same thirst for knowledge and come eager to learn!

At our school, forty percent of the students are on free or reduced-price lunch, but all of our students are eager to meet the challenges of a rigorous and engaging curriculum.

Every student is held to high expectations and supported as they soar to their fullest potential.

My Project

These materials will make a huge difference with my math students. I will use the dry-erase sheet pockets and Expo markers to increase student learning with guided math notes. With these materials, students can work with groups, partners, or individually to solve and practice important math concepts. The individual pockets allow each student to be responsible for their own learning.

I want to make learning fun and memorable!

My students deserve a chance to use the fraction, decimal, percent bingo game enhance their learning. With the game buzzers, we can practice math while having fun! Building team camaraderie and practicing math at the same time will be rewarding for these children.

Finally, the fraction pieces will help my students see visual representations of fractions. With the capability move, add, and subtract my students can easily compare and solve problems using the fraction pieces. Because these are also magnetic, they will be easy for each student to see and use on the board.
