Math Done Like A SuperStar

My students need the 24 pack of one inch binders in order to make Math Daily 3 successful. Inside these binders will include activities/games that the students could use for "math by myself".

My Students

I will be teaching in the same county in which I grew up and graduated from. Within the county, many students live in a single parent home where they are not the only child and the parent is working at least two job in order to provide for their household.

In this class, we are all "SuperStars", as our classroom theme is Hollywood.

My "SuperStars" come from various backgrounds and they all learn differently. Some learn on their own, in a group, or hands on, and my goal as a first year teacher is to give the "SuperStars" the best math creative experience as I can.

Coming from the same county, I want my students to know that they have a choice in life and they don't have to be another static in society, let alone within the county. I want to see my students grow and succeed in life. I want my student's to be able to come back to me and tell me what great things they are doing in life. I want my students to know I believe in them just as someone believed in me. Working with kids is my passion and it will show.

My Project

As a first year teacher, just from my intern, I noticed that students like to play games, and what is a better way to get students to learn through games. Using Math Daily 3 is something I have grown to love. The stations in Math Daily 3 (math by myself, math with someone, and math with the teacher) help students master the standard. Math Daily 3 is something that I can incorporate with any elementary grade, with the exception of pre-k and kindergarten.

As stated, the math binder will be used to hold all math activities that will relate to the math standard we are working on and a review of other standards.

The purpose of the storage container is for students to place with math tools in. For instance, one standard deals with multiplication. A math tool that would be place in the tool box would be playing cards and students can do math with someone and play a multiplication game by multiplying the two cards pulled.

Another item that will make Math Daily 3 a success for the students is the use of the base ten blocks will also help with multiplying and also place value.

The products I have selected will help my students excel in math. The students will have a choice into choosing an activity that they like best that will help them master the standard at hand. Having a flexible seating classroom and allowing students to be in control of selecting a seat and an activity to help better their learning will give the student a sense of control. I have seen through my intern that giving students a choice can have a positive impact on their learning and confidence.
