Mrs. Wilson from Ithaca MI is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Math Literacy

My students need Steve Jenkins picture books to help make stronger connections through a deeper understanding of mathematical concepts.

My Students

These students are caring friends, problem solvers and insatiable learners. They are growing and learning in the same small, tight knit, school community that inspired me to be a teacher.

We are part of a small, rural farming community that that is very supportive of our children’s education, but the reality is, we are in a 3-6 building where our free and reduced lunch rate is close to 54%, with the district average being slightly lower.

Math is an area in which students are always in need of practical and engaging explorations. Making a solid connections between math, literacy and science skills enhances student learning.

My Project

To build middle-grade math literacy, Steve Jenkins’ books will be shared and used across two grade levels: the end of 5th grade to explore conversion of standard units of measurements and to begin 6th grade with the study of ratios. 6th graders will incorporate the measurements explored in Jenkins’ books to facilitate a deeper understanding of ratios and proportions. For example, Big and Little presents the featured animals at 8:1 inch ratio. 5th graders will use the same books to explore the actual measurements included with the engaging texts. By using the books to end 5th grade and begin 6th grade, students will make stronger connections through deeper understanding of mathematical concepts.
