After completing my two-year commitment with Teach For America, I have just started my third year of teaching at KIPP San Francisco Bay Academy. KIPP SF Bay is a charter middle school that prepares low-income youth for the path to college. Students are in school for nine and a half hours a day, in the summer, and every other Saturday. The extra time has contributed to tremendous gains in the first two years of the school's existence. I have developed an engaging curriculum for my sixth grade math wizards, but I would like to have an extra incentive for my scholars that the budget does not allow for. At the KIPP annual teachers' summit I learned of the game 24. It allows students to pair up and challenge each other to create the number 24 using addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals and eventually algebra. Different card levels challenge students who are at different math levels. 24 is available in classroom sets so there can be tournaments. There are extra scorecards and charts that keep the excitement alive as the tournament progresses throughout the year. I am excited by the prospect of hosting a tournament for not only the sixth grade, but the entire school! The three classroom sets I am asking for are appropriate for fifth, sixth, and seventh grades. I am honored to work at this exceptional school and appreciate any help I receive that will push my students toward college.
