Promoting FUN, FOCUS, FINISH with Scholastic Math Magazine.

My students need to know that literacy is everywhere. Scholastic MATH readers will encourage them to read, keep up to date on world news, and practice real world math.

My Students

Benjamin Franklin once said, "Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn." That is why I try to create a classroom environment that encourages student involvement.

Our school is located in a low socioeconomic area where all of our students are provided with free breakfast and lunch.

Most of the children come from hard working families that have lost their jobs in manufacturing and are struggling to make ends meet. Each student brings their unique learning style, which can be addressed by involving them in their learning process while having fun at the same time. Our school motto for this year is FUN, FOCUS, FINISH and I feel that Scholastic Math Magazine will make our motto a reality for my students.

My Project

Providing my students with a fun and engaging way of learning the math skills necessary to be successful in the real world is my goal as an educator. The Scholastic Math magazine does just that. The focus of each issue is on real life experiences with a math application embedded. I have found no other materials that do all this and more. The fact that my students will have access to the magazine anywhere, at anytime, is essential in giving them all the possible opportunities to explore and learn. Plus, every issue is designed to meet the Common Core Standards, with rigorous practice problems modeled on upcoming assessments. Scholastic Math magazine is obviously a good choice to meet the needs of all my students.

Scholastic Math Magazine will help my students relate the concepts we are studying in math to their "real world" and also present the math in a way they haven't thought about.

Having the Scholastic Math Magazine will not only help my students relate the math to their lives and provide an outlet from a dry textbook, but it will also encourage them to read and build their literacy skills.
