Mrs. Frank from Howell MI is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Middle School Math Makes Sense

My students need various sensory experiences in math. Algebra dominoes will help them solve equations as well as learning math vocabulary through the use of the Sir Cumference books. We also need cardstock and vinyl chalk covering.

My Students

My students are eighth grade students who are special education students mainstreamed into general education math classes. Due to their various disabilities, math can be a struggle for them.

Many of my students struggle with attentional issues or learning disabilities in math.

Since math is based on foundational skills that build one on top of another, missing one concept or one lesson, can have an impact on their progression in math.

Our school is in a semi-rural area with many students moving here from the suburbs of Detroit. We have many families who are living in poverty as well as many affluent families. It is a study of contrasts which makes it difficult at times since resources can be limited for some of my students compared to their peers.

My Project

My students would benefit from experiencing math through a variety of sensory activities. My students struggle to stay engaged during lecture and practice classroom structure, so my intensive pullout class needs to be formatted differently.

Hearing math vocabulary through reading the Sir Cumference books, will allow them to pick up needed vocabulary in a fun and different format than definitions given in their core math class.

Using the algebra dominoes, students will be able to manipulate the dominoes as they solve equations. The cardstock will be used to print task cards for them to solve equations as they move around the room.
