My Students

My thirty 5th grade students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They are hard working and show a thirst for knowledge that I love seeing at our school. So many of my students are quick learners who are then looking to further their knowledge in math and science by doing extended learning activities. It's hard to keep up with them!!

By incorporating hands-on activities into our daily learning, my students are becoming professional problem solvers!

I know that they will be the future leaders of our fabulous country and I want to provide them with the best learning experiences that I can.

My Project

I will be using these supplies to create math maker kits. By having these math kits, all of my students will be able to use unifix cubes and base ten blocks to help deepen their understanding of math and how numbers are related. With the geo-boards, toothpicks and play dough they can explore three-dimensional shapes. With the magnets and building bricks, students can create their own shapes and explore how math concepts can flow into shapes. The beads will help students manipulate through multiplication and division. Using these hands-on math maker activities, students will better understand how to group and ungroup numbers (multiply and divide) and their relationships to one another.
