Mrs. Baransky from Meriden CT is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Middle School Mathematical Workstations

My students need to be able to practice mathematical skills that have not been mastered with fun activities, work stations can differentiate for each student.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students go to an urban school with a variety of socio-economic backgrounds. My students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. My students struggle with remembering mathematical concepts and most do no not have opportunities to practice mathematical skills outside of the classroom setting.

Mathematical concepts can be learned through fun, exciting activities.

My students need to experience math in new, exciting ways that will enable them to meet with success. My students do not have a strong belief in themselves when it comes to mathematical concepts.

My Project

I am starting to build workstations that can assist my students with needed hands on activities that can build background understandings that can be built upon for future concepts. Workstations can be difficult to monitor so, all students will complete a response sheet in order document each of the answers.

Students need to feel successful when completing activities.

Workstations can be used for remediation or extension. I am building a library of activities for students to use in order to increase understandings as well as create a mind set demonstrating a can do attitude.

Matching activities, like mastering math games, write and wipe graphing boards, give students immediate feedback which will allow a student to move faster (or slower) than their peers.
