My Students

I am excited to begin this school year! I would love to create a "Math Zone" classroom for my incoming scholars that gives even the most timid scholar the most confidence! My vision this year is to create a safe learning and math friendly environment for all of my learners.

This is my first year teaching and I would like to have learning materials and activities in arms reach for my scholars when they walk through the door.

My goal is to keep them motivated and interested for a great year ahead! I would like to have a classroom that serves no excuse why a child could not be able to participate in classroom activities and homework assignments! I will do all I can do to meet the needs of all scholars.

My Project

The school supplies will be given out to everyone so that no one will have the excuse of not being prepared for any lesson. With the "Math in a Flash" kit, games and activities will help turn math lessons into a fun and exciting environment where scholars will forget they are learning. The multiplication, fraction, and division quiz cards will help improve the fluency of both 4th and 5th grade math concepts they'll need in order to move on. I like the idea of having multiple activities for some of the main subjects so that scholars have the opportunity to pick what works best for them. That's where "Math Bingo Library" and "Multiplication Tower" activities serves as additional math engaging manipulatives. These games will also help scholars learn to work in groups big and small, and build motivation when working with one another.
