My Students

My 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 come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. Truly, they are my inspiration!

Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly.

We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, guided practice and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!

My Project

My students need materials that are going to help them with conceptual understanding in mathematics. Large magnetic fraction tiles will help the whole class see how fractions are equivalent. Build and Learn Kits will help students reach a better understanding of area, perimeter, and volume. Hands-On Regrouping Kits will help students practice foundational skills in mathematics.

Many students need to feel the math, not just see or hear it.

Most students in my classroom are tactile learners, meaning they need to touch manipulatives and move them around to truly understand a concept. Please help me to turn abstract ideas into concrete examples for my students.
