My Students

I teach an energetic combination class with 1st and 2nd Grade students who enjoy learning. They all have unique personalities that enhance our class "family." Let's just say, there is never a dull moment on the class. There is always something happening. We are a Title 1 school in a low income neighborhood in Stockton, California. My student some from diverse backgrounds where they have limited access to technology, and fresh foods. Most of my students receive free and reduced meals. This bunch sure is a wiggly one, which means that lessons are little more creative then a typical first or second grade classroom. In our class, technology is a daily necessity, two grade levels is not an easy task when you are the only teacher in the classroom. We find creative ways to get our standards met as we learn together with first and second grade. We are finding creative ways to use the resources that we have available to make learning meaningful.

My Project

Incorporating math games and manipulatives into our math time would help my students become better mathematicians. My students learn best by doing. They have a better grasp on lessons when they get to apply what they have learned with simulation games. I have seen it work when they go "shopping" with play money, they can easily count coins from the extra practice with the play money. By supplementing math concepts with games would help student have a better connection with math. These math games and manipulatives will help make concrete ideas of math more abstract when the students experience it hands-on. Math makes more sense when you can use it in real life.
