I teach at a school that is in a low-income neighborhood. Currently, around 86% of our students receive free or reduced-price lunches, and many students still go hungry when they are not in school. Our staff works very hard to provide our students with everything they need to help create a safe and healthy environment. We often have many difficulties finding resources for the many needs of our students.
With our students coming from a challenging background, it is always a pleasure to see them overcome their challenges and become successful throughout the year.We also have a high English Language Learners population at our school with 73% of our students coming from a Hispanic background.
This adds another level of challenges for these students. Our students are enthusiastic to come to school, and with the help of our staff, our school has definitely become one big family.
Through the use of math journals my students will practice daily math skills in a variety of ways. We will practice writing the months of the year, understand how to write the date correctly, and give students the opportunity to use various strategies to solve equations.
My students love to learn and would love to be responsible for their own math journal.
This journal will give students the opportunity to review skills from kindergarten and practice new skills.
The students in my classroom can't wait to practice new skills and have the opportunity to have their own math journal to work in everyday.
