My Students

My students live in a high poverty neighborhood; school is their safe haven and place to receive their daily needs. My school provides breakfast, lunch, and daily healthy snacks. Starting next year, students will begin receiving dinner as well. Although my students come to school with challenges, I do all I can to fill in the gaps and provide love, safety, and comfort to make their learning more fulfilling and challenging so they are college and career ready in the future.

My Project

This math fluency kit will help my students get daily math fluency practice. I will use these materials in my classroom daily by using the number talk cards and having students using the manipulatives to help reinforce the skills.

The students will get the extra practice that they so desperately need to become fluent in 2nd-grade math!

These materials will help me to assist my students with their everyday math needs and help to fill in the gaps of fluency that they usually come with to 2nd grade. The number strings will give me the opportunity to check for understanding and reteach where necessary. My students would truly benefit from any extra support and I could use the extra support to help me in my classroom.
