My Students

My students are ages 8-9. The majority of my students are ELL (English Language Learners) whose parents work most of the day and into the evening. They spend most of their day in school, and in after school programs. Sadly, my students do not get a lot of adult attention or support and come to school in need of emotional support as well as academic support.

The students that I have are hardworking, determined, grateful, and curious.

These are just a few words that describe the amazing young people that enter my classroom each day.

My students try to learn to the best of their abilities but need a lot of small group work. They are eager to learn yet often times when they leave here they no longer have the English support they need. I try to engage my students in the classroom as much as I can by providing a variety of activities and send them with things to do at home to support the work we did in class. They are our future, and I want to give them a great start to their long successful careers.

My Project

Math manipulatives allow a hands-on approach to grasping important math concepts. These manipulatives (rulers, dice in dice, mathlink cubes, transparent color counting chips and Cuisenaire rods) are used in order to be fully engaged in math instruction. There are so many uses for math manipulatives in the classroom. Rulers will be used for measuring, Cuisenaire rods will be used when learning about fractions, the dice/cubes/counters will be used for multiplication and division.

These manipulatives are great teaching tools that will engage my students in the hands-on learning of mathematics.

These materials can also be used doing STEM projects. STEM education integrate understanding of science, math skills, which allows them the ability to solve problems, think deeply, manage projects, and which students must use to solve real life problems.

Putting math manipulatives into the hands of my students will allow them to dig deeper into the math they are learning. I truly believe that all students will become better math thinkers through the use of these supplies. Thank you for your support!
