My Students

My students are superheroes, they just don't know it yet. Every child has hidden superpowers, but my students have a hard time believing that about themselves. The students who come to my Resource classroom for extra help with reading and math have a hard time believing they have superpowers. Because they need extra help outside of the classroom, they often feel less than the other students and their self-esteem suffers.

A superpower that every single one of my students has is the superpower of never giving up.

There is not a single student among them who is lazy. Each student works extra hard to strive for the same success they see their other classmates achieving. That is not something that can be taught, it is intuitive and part of a person's character and my students have it naturally.

My Project

Picture a group of students who are struggling to understand math concepts. One day, their teacher reads them a story about a family reunion where a large spaghetti and meatball dinner is going to be served. As the students listen to the story, they are asked to consider the seating arrangements for all of the family members. Chairs and tables must be rearranged again and again as more and more family members are added to the list. Will there be enough spaghetti? Will there be enough meatballs? The students must determine how many meatballs per family member and how much spaghetti will be enough. The story ends in triumph as the large family enjoys their time together and the delicious dinner - and the whole time, the students didn't even realize they were doing the math.

Real-life math does not come to us on a worksheet, it comes to us in daily decisions like how many meatballs to make for dinner, or budgeting our grocery lists.

The books and items on my list will help me create real-life math situations that will engage and interest my students. They will develop true-life math, reading, and listening comprehension skills, and they will have fun.
