My Students

My students are in second grade and attend a Title I school. 99% of the students at our school have at least one parent serving in the military. They are constantly moving from school to school. I do my best to make sure they feel safe, loved, and welcomed. I also have a large population of students with special needs. They work hard and are excited to be at school every day.

Students who come from military families are resilient.

I make the transitions for them as easy as possible, and I welcome them and encourage them to be successful. I am amazed every day by the sacrifices these students and their parents have to make. I feel honored to teach these students. It is the least I can do to help support them.

My Project

The Daily Common Core Math Routine Journals will help refine the students' math skills each day of the school year, with challenging activities that target common core state standards. The problems will focus on building conceptual understanding and procedural skills that students so desperately need to succeed in life. These journals will allow the students to have a sense of independence in the classroom. They will be able to access them from their desk and get started right away, no wait time!

Due to budget cuts we are limited to the amount of paper we are allotted each month.

These journals will save us on paper immensely.

Many times in math after a topic is taught some of the students are still struggling with the concept. It is sometimes difficult to find the time to go back and reteach a topic after it has already been taught. These journals are a great way to revisit topics and allow students a second and third try at learning the concept.
