It's still hard for me to wrap my head around the fact that my students and I will not be returning to school this year. Despite the challenges we're facing here in Boston, my students are continuing their learning digitally as best as they can. Each of them has a Chromebook to access digital content.
I'm really proud of how my sixth graders have handled these unimaginable circumstances.
I see my students helping one another, reaching out to classmates, and becoming more independent learners. They miss school, but they are demonstrating a lot of maturity and so much perseverance during these tough times.
My students are enthusiastic mathematicians. They love learning new math concepts and tackling tough problems. In class, we categorize our problems as mild, medium, and spicy, and they just love spicy problems! They've been doing a great job of learning remotely using digital math programs, but there's one thing we've all missed in our math class - a document camera.
This document camera will allow me to model math problems for students as we continue to learn remotely.
At school, I use a document camera every day during math class. It allows me to show kids how to work on problems step-by-step and encourages students to visualize the math concepts we're learning. Help me to keep my students solving spicy problems!
