My Students

My students are creative, hard-working, and have infinite potential. They come from a high poverty background, and many have difficult lives at home, which I cannot control. However, at school I can ensure that they have a safe, positive and consistent environment for learning. We constantly focus on having a positive attitude and a growth mindset in my classroom because above all else, I want my students to have the ability to persevere through challenges in the classroom and in Life.

My Project

Students need to have a strong foundation in math in order to succeed. Math standards build on each other each year, meaning that if students miss a concept at an early age, it can be very difficult for them to catch up. Manipulatives allow students to use tangible resources to create abstract math problems.

Math manipulatives will benefit my students because they allow them to have concrete understanding of mathematical concepts.

Students start to learn fractions in third grade, and fraction strips allow students to see and feel a fraction, in order to fully understand the concept. Maipulatives especially help struggling learners as they allow for differentiated instruction and learning.
