Mathematics on Saturdays
Help me give my students something to snack on as they work and copy paper so that they may create and print projects.
My students are from diverse backgrounds, the majority being African-American. Our school is a Title I school, meaning that the majority of our students are from low-income households or shelters.
Approximately 60% of our students attained a level 2 or below on the NYC state tests.
However, we believe our students, given our student-centered learning approach, can achieve the Regents Level requirements of the New York State. To this end, we could really use all the resources we can get to achieve this goal.
As the weeks move on, more and more students have become interested in practicing and increasing their fluency and deepening their understanding on the requirements of the Algebra 1 curriculum. This is our third reach out for support since excitedly our group is growing.
It's MATH on Saturdays, three hours of hard work.
Of course other forms of motivation are done but snacks like the chips and cereal bars and adequate supplies hit the spot as my students would say. The happier the students the more confident they feel in pursuit of their goals of achievement.
Thanking you in advance for your usual kindness and support.
