My Students

Fifth grade is the culmination of elementary in my school. In the final year in our building, the fifth graders know they are leaders. We cultivate citizenship and leadership. In my classroom, everyone is welcome and everyone is important.

My students are readers, writers, doers, and thinkers.

They appreciate structure, but enjoy independence and choice within their limits. They come to school ready to learn and do their best. My students understand that "it's okay to not know, but it's not okay to not try".

My Project

During our Guided Math Groups, students will be able to choose one of these games to play during a rotation! These board games and card games are an excellent way for my students to practice their math skills. In the game Proof!, students can brush up on their mental math to beat the competition. The Allowance Game provides students the opportunity to earn and spend money wisely. These games are ideal for centers and small group math as my students build and apply math concepts. The games can be easily differentiated to individual levels. Critical thinking and team building skills will also be developed through game play. Students will LOVE them!
