My students represent one of the most diverse student bodies in the state. Nearly 80% of them receive free or reduced-price lunch, and many struggle academically. That said, they are exceptionally hard workers and dedicated to improving their academic outcomes.
Over the past two years, our math students have had the highest growth of all students in the district.
We are extremely proud of them and excited for a new school year. We know that when they have everything they need to be successful at school, they are able to accomplish so much!
My students are very motivated by the use of fun and interesting materials in class. We love to use playing cards and multi-sided dice to represent probability. We use dice to represent equally likely outcomes and then we combine dice and cards to look at compound events. These materials will allow us to have real-world examples while we discover probability patterns.
Math can be a difficult subject, but I want to make it as effortless and fun as possible for all students.
We use a Promethean board every day in class, but my pens do not work for my board. With a new stylus I can take notes on my iPad for the students to see on the board. Also having ink cartridges will allow me to make copies in my room instead of sending a student to the office, losing out on academic time. I can also make a copy of the book if a student leaves theirs at home, allowing them to still be a part of class that day.
I want my students to come to school and not worry if they left their notebook, pencil, or book at home. With your help, we can have a smooth transition into a new school year.
