I am the lucky teacher of a self contained special education classroom in a Title 1 school in the Bronx. My middle school class ranges from 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. They are a terrific group of kids who I miss terribly.
My students are enthusiastic learners, who despite their learning struggles, always try their best.
Because they come to my classroom with a variety of learning needs and styles, I try my best to present the curriculum to them in a variety of ways. Tailoring instruction by modifying and differentiating curriculum to meet their individual needs.
Our school is located in the Kingsbridge section of the Bronx, and many students rely on our building for much more than just classes. We provide students with breakfast and lunch programs, after school, and camp programs. These kids are missing so much more than classes, they are missing a second home.
The materials I am asking for my students will help me help them. My students benefit from direct instruction during our math activities. This technology allows me to SHOW them how to execute math problems. I am finding this increasingly difficult to do remotely.
The donations to this project will help to improve my students' understanding of algebra, functions, and equations using the Glencoe Math Curriculum.
By donating to my project, you will not only help to improve and increase student execution of a problem, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement. My learners are more often than not visual learners, and the best way I have found to reach them, is by showing them.
