My Students

I have two classes of amazing and hard-working fifth-grade students in Antioch. Our K-6 elementary school is comprised of a high percentage of low-income families. Even with the struggles that some of these students and families face when they are at home, it does not stop them from coming to school eager to learn. I want my students to have the materials available to them that will allow them to be as successful as they can possibly be.

My Project

I am working hard to help my 5th-grade students become more organized in math. There are a lot of difficult concepts being taught in 5th grade math, and students often have a hard time keeping it all straight. I am asking for binders and dividers for each student to keep their math notes in. This will allow students to find the information they need quickly when completing classwork, homework, or when taking a test. Students will also use these binders to write and solve practice problems for each aspect of fifth-grade math. I am hoping this will not only help them in math but also teach them how to stay organized in all aspects of their lives.
