My Students

This year I will introducing a STEAM program to our school. As a teacher in a low-income, high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. All of our students receive free breakfast and 90% receive free or reduced-price lunch. Most of my students come from low-income homes and the reading gap starts early because of health problems at birth that slow cognitive, social, and emotional development.

The reading gap can widen when kids don’t have access to books, language-rich homes, or high-quality learning experiences.

It continues to widen even more for kids growing up in poverty.

My Project

My students need to learn their math facts automatically. I have made this a goal for my students to be able to complete a Mad Minute of math facts in 1 minute in the area of subtractions, addition, multiplication and division. In order to help their parents be able to work with their students at home, we need to supply these flashcards to each student.

Math facts fluency refers to the ability to recall the basic facts in all four operations accurately, quickly and effortlessly.

When students achieve automaticity with these facts, they have attained a level of mastery that enables them to retrieve them for long-term memory without conscious effort or attention.

Through automaticity, students free up their working memory and can devote it to problem-solving and learning new concepts and skills. Quite simply, a lack of fluency in basic math fact recall significantly hinders a child’s subsequent progress with problem-solving, algebra and higher-order math concepts.
