My Students

At 8 am every week day morning I stand at my door and greet my 5th grade students as they come into first hour for math. Some are happy to be there; some are not. Some are happy to be away from the chaos of an unstable home life for a few hours; others would rather be home sleeping, playing video games, or reading. My students come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences.In the end they are your typical middle school students who are full of energy, emotion, opinions and enthusiasm (or lack of enthusiasm) that you would expect from middle school students

Yes, sometimes they drive me a little crazy.

They are middle school kids and I have learned to love each one of them for their uniqueness and what they bring to the table on any given day.

At the end of the day I am charged with getting math content into their growing minds. Some students are easy to reach, some need a little more work.

My Project

My 5th grade students need materials to keep them organized as they make the transition to middle school. In my school 5th grade is at the middle school. I will be teaching 2 blocks of 5th grade math and science and need some materials to help keep them organized and ready to learn.

Transitions are easier when you are organized and don't have to worry about your materials.

I have requested magazine holders for my students to use in my classroom for holding their math and science work books and other materials they may need to hold onto. By having these holders it will give them a safe place to store their items so they have them ready and available when they are needed. I have also requested pencils so I can have some available for my students who might not have some. The red pens and markers will come in handy for correcting their (and their peers) work and making their projects beautiful.
