Math Sure Learning

My students need supplemental instructional materials in math, science, and reading.

My Students

Most of my students are proficient in both reading and math. Some of the books I ordered are for those that need extra help to catch up. The other books are one grade level above because some students are advanced and need to be challenged.

They are mostly inner-city students in a high poverty area of this city.

88% of my students are proficient in reading and 65% are proficient in math according to the latest 2012-2013 high stakes data results. They are fourth graders and they are learning/working towards the Common Core Standards.

My Project

I will incorporate the Lakeshore math test prep rings grade 4 and 5 into my daily literacy center time because they are now currently using the grade 3 ones and they are finding them too easy. Both test prep rings are lively and colorful and require reading and problem-solving in math, which is why I like it. I am using the Evan Moors science readers and reading comprehension readers workbooks as supplement homework and vacation-break assignments. Last May I suggested to one of my parents to use the grade 3 Evan Moors with her child during the same. By November of 2012, this child was reading on grade level and scored "proficient" on the high stakes NECAP test administered this past fall. I plan on using the Evan Moors to support the "at home" learning of other students in my class! Lakeshore learning science photo library reading set is meant to supplement the district's science curriculum, which provides lots hands-on activities but not a lot of nonfiction texts.

It's important to continue to bring new resources into the classroom to keep my students motivated.

The instructional materials chosen are research-based and they work. All of the resources I have ordered through Donors Choose have a direct correlation to learning and achievement.
