My Students

I work with students who are English language learners and have learning disabilities. They also come from families that struggle with paying bills and affording school supplies and books. Despite these challenges, my students bring many strengths to the classroom, including a passion for learning and a willingness to take risks as they acquire the building blocks of reading.

My students love math, science, computers, and art, and they love learning how things work.

They are curious about the world and are eager to improve their literacy skills.

My Project

My students will learn math concepts such as geometry, measurement, algebra, factions, and place value with a more in-depth understanding when given the opportunity to play fun cooperative folder games. Students who struggle with understanding money will get extra practice and insight when they play The Allowance Game and play games using the magnetic coins.

The National Council of Mathematics Teachers assert, "Teachers should provide repeated opportunities for students to play games, then let the mathematical ideas emerge as students notice new patterns, relationships, and strategies.

" Students will benefit from the additional practice and the experience of having fun while learning math concepts.

These interactive games will help my students practice social skills such as turn taking and helping peers while also working on their math goals.
