Making Math Hands On!

My Students

I am a math teacher to a little over seventy 5th grade students. I teach on a three man team with an ELA teacher and a Science/Social Studies teacher. Students rotate between the three teachers for a 90 minute class period each.

The students who walk through my door come from a variety of backgrounds.

In my classroom I serve both Inclusion and ESOL students. I want to create an environment where ALL of my students have fun getting their hands dirty learning all the cool things math can teach them! Although I'm thankful to work for a district who can supply teachers with a variety of classroom materials, I want to give my students more!

My Project

No more "I'm just not good at math"!

My goal is to make math so much fun that kids no longer hear that awful inner voice that says "I can't do this" and "I'm not good at math".

Rather, through the fun of "playing" (you know that thing, where you learn but you're too busy enjoying yourself to notice) that inner voice will change to "I never knew math could be so much fun" and "Math is my favorite subject"!

Students will have a hands on experience with everything from drawing a number line, to adding fraction pizzas, to adding base 10 blocks on the board- all of these tools will help kids not only learn in a fun way but give them the opportunity to talk through and solve equations with their classmates.
