The school is located in an urban community, with a high rate of poverty. We have up to 30 students in every classroom each year. My goal is that the students become a community of learners and help each other grow. I try to teach my students through many different learning styles. We use hands-on tools, technology, books, videos, and more. We work in partners and small groups regularly, and students really work together to help each other be successful.
My students come from a variety of home situations, so they are learning academic and social skills in all subjects.
When my students go home, they do not all get the same academic support. This makes it extremely important to do anything I can during the school day to help them foster the love of learning.
Many students often come to school with low number sense, and that can hinder their ability to learn higher level math skills. I currently work with the lowest performing kindergarten, first and second grade students for math, and I am hoping to build their number sense with highly engaging math stations.
These materials will be used to create partner stations so that students effectively practice the skills and strategies they need to close the gaps of their understanding.
The main way we will be using these tools will be to help students understand multiple representations and strategies to solve math tasks with numbers between 1-100.
When students understand the relationship between various representations of numbers, they start to solidify their understanding of ones, tens and hundreds. This is the foundation for all of the math skills they will learn year after year!
