Math Made Easy!
My students need dry erase markers to work math problems on white boards, flip chart paper and markers to see notes in small groups and an easel to hold the chart paper.
Scared of speaking in front of large groups of your peers? You would fit right in my math class! Many of my students have a difficult time understanding math concepts and are nervous to ask questions in large groups because they don't want anybody else to know they "don't get it!" .
My students attend a middle school, grades 6-8, that does a good job at providing opportunities for all students to succeed.
It is very important for all middle school students to gain a firm grasp of mathematical and English concepts before they enter high school.
I teach 7th and 8th grade pre-algebra, intensive pre-algebra, and algebra. Many of my students have a difficult time understanding math concepts and are nervous to ask questions in large groups. I have found that when I am able to use small group rotation, my students are more willing to ask questions about concepts they do not understand. There is a big difference between asking a question with 7 of your peers and 27 of your peers!
I am asking for materials that will allow my classes to continue with small group rotations; an easel that can be used for a white board or to hang chart paper, chart paper and dry erase markers to use on personal sized white boards.
During every small group, the students spend time working sample problems either on their own paper or even better using small white boards. It makes it very easy to see successes and areas of concern. AND even better, the students love to write on the white board! My students and I would use these materials on a daily basis.
The materials for this project are very important to my students.
The chart paper, dry erase markers and the easel will allow my students to be in small groups to help facilitate peer tutoring and safe environment to ask questions.
