Orcas Dive Into Math

Help me give my students become math superstars using manipulatives in student driven centers.

My Students

Our school has a population that is very diverse. We are a population of all socioeconomic levels as well as many nationalities. We are a Title I school with a large portion of the students in which English is not their first language. With the abrupt in to the school year, many of my students will be behind in the fall. My goal is to enhance our reading and listening Center to help reach our goals. This also includes materials for my ELLs and ESE students.

These items will help my students learn to love math.

Math centers are important to foster Mathematic literacy!

My Project

Flexible seating allows students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables, sitting under tables with clip boards, or sitting or laying on the floor with a clip board. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk.

My students are noticeably more engaged in their work and less disruptive of their peers when they are given a choice of where to work.

The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them additional seating options to make more effective learning choices. Thus allowing them to focus on the work at hand with the manipulatives in their spot.
