My Students

What do you think of when you hear the word math? For many adults, they have a negative opinion of math due to the instruction that they received when they were students. It is my hope that my students will develop a love for math that will lead them to great opportunities in the future.

We are a Title 1 school and have students from all over the world.

We have students from El Salvador, Bangladesh, Honduras, India, and more! In addition to our high ESOL population, we also have students with special needs within our classroom. We have two students that are new to the country, and have very little English. Therefore it is sometimes difficult for us to communicate with each other. However, math is a universal language!

My Project

This year we have a math workshop in our classroom, complete with rotations. Rather than receiving a full hour of whole group, teacher-directed instruction, students are given the opportunity to participate in centers. They work in small groups and with partners to first learn a skill, and then play a math game to reinforce the skill. The problem that we are having is that we are growing increasingly bored with the few math games in our classroom. They are Kindergarten games! They allow us to practice some very important skills, however, we need to be practicing 2nd grade skills. We would love to have some games that are correlated with our grade level standards.

This project will make such a large difference in our classroom.

They will help us not only with our math skills, but also with our communication skills. These games will give us the chance to work with all of our peers!
