Moving and Modeling in Math

Help me give my students an authentic, interactive, and supportive math experience by donating basic essentials that are unfortunately not always available at Title-1 schools.

My Students

I serve an outstanding group of students whom each make being a 7th grade teacher worth while. 100% of my students are African American and considered low-income. Though my students are at a disadvantage economically, they are certainly at an advantage intellectually. I am lucky enough to serve students from ALL walks of life with ALL types of abilities. Many of my students are apart of the Gifted and Talented pool and others are about of the Special Education Department. Each of my students bring something special to my classroom that would make the class feel incomplete without him/her.

My students have become much stronger in mathematics this school year with absolutely no resources to aid their academics.

This speaks volumes. Viewing their standardized testing data thus far, the growth that we have seen is simply astonishing. I am certain that if my students had access to the right resources and were exposed to the right opportunities, their successes would see higher heights.

My Project

It is my duty to make decisions in the best interest if my students. Visual representations and interactive lessons undoubtedly assist the diverse needs of the learners in my classroom. Math can be overwhelming and without the proper model(s), many students can get lost in all of the content. Several of my students learn better through movement and scaffolded instruction. The overhead camera will afford those students with ADHD and/or any other focusing deficits to easily catch up during teacher-led instruction if they happen to get distracted from the lesson at any given moment. All students deserve to be educated in the way that they learn.

We all know very well that whiteboards are ESSENTIAL to the math classroom.

An extra whiteboard would give my students more space to showcase their work and knowledge. Additionally, I find it even more important to give ALL STUDENTS access to the content. Every student has their own story and may not always come with the prerequisite skills that educators expect. Extra calculators in my classroom with help build the confidence of students who struggle with mental math.

Title 1 schools are underfunded but sites like Donor Choose affords us the opportunity to add resources to the rigor!
