I work in an elementary school in Brooklyn. I teach fifth grade. A third of my students are English Language Learners. Many of my quieter students who are not yet proficient in English enjoy math. As long as I am able to explain the concept, my students are able to demonstrate their ability as math students. My students are able to compute number problems, make comparisons and form strategies on how to solve problems. Sometimes, we come upon a number concept that I just cannot seem to find the words to explain. We have been working on writing numbers in expanded notation. I would like a place value pocket chart, student pocket chart boards and a place value kit from Lakeshore. My students are struggling with the concept of place value and seeing the relationship of each digit's placement. I would like a way to make this very visual and have materials that will support those students who need a means to practice both independently and in partnerships. These materials will also allow the children to match the numbers with the written words. As we work through problems with this big engaging chart, I believe students will have not only the support they need but also a tool to demonstrate their success.
