Patriots: Learning The Good Math

My students need colored paper, colored pencils, glue sticks, index cards, and a pencil sharpener for their Interactive Math Notebooks.

My Students

"I can't do math." This is the perceptive of many students who have not been very successful in previous math classes. I want to change this perceptive by using interactive math notebooks to help skills stick with students and bring a new outlook on 7th grade math.

I teach 88 knowledge-thirsty 7th grade students.

My students attend a Title 1, low income school. Our school believes in inspiring all of our students to strive for excellence and reach their full potential. Many of my students do not come to school with the basic school supplies, so I know they cannot afford the supplies for this very helpful resource. Additionally, I am always looking for ways to teach Math that will not only involve every student but also keep their attention.

My Project

An interactive notebook is a new way of taking notes and remaining active within the lessons. Students are no longer just copying the information the teacher feeds them with their pencil. They will have the opportunity to make their learning colorful and hands-on. Students use color to help them remember key terms and concepts. They will create foldables to help them organize their information and study. They will reflect on lessons to connect the information to their own lives which will aid to understanding and learning. In order to do this, I am asking for colored paper, colored pencils, glue sticks, index cards, and a pencil sharpener.

I am so excited about implementing these Interactive Notebooks into my classroom this year.

I know my students will benefit in so many ways: pride in their work, hands on and organization. Most importantly, I want my students to do math, appreciate math and love math. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
