Our school is made up of a diverse group of 5th and 6th grade students. We are considered a middle school, but we try to keep many aspects of an elementary base. We realize that kids need to be involved with hands-on experiences with science, technology, and math. In our building, we have about 500 students from diverse backgrounds. Our building is considered a Title I school, which means most of our students are considered "at-risk." Many of my students receive backpack food on the weekends, and our school also runs a food/clothing pantry for our families. Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day.
Students all learn in different ways. Some learn by reading. Some learn by listening. And some learn by doing! All of the resources I have chosen will allow the students to conceptualize math topics by drawing, building, putting things together, or taking things apart.
These activity stations and games will aid the students in learning the different math concepts while having fun!
The students will use the math file folders with hands-on regrouping kit, and build & learn geometry kit to reinforce the day's math topic. And as the students become more confident in their abilities, the students will then use the fraction, decimals, and operations activity stations independently during math and science centers.
