My Students

My students are full of drive and ambition. They are excited when presented new activities to extend on their previous learning. We have been learning new and exciting ways to learn Math concepts. We are in dire need of up-to-date manipulatives.

My students are excited about learning especially when it's not always involving paper and pencil.

My school is located in a low income area, and it lacks the resources that other schools have. I want to my students excited about learning math and to think outside the box.

Success is not always what you can produce on a paper test but how can you apply it in real life. Many students are visual and tactile learners, and using manipulatives is one way to help them grow to eventually apply that knowledge to a test such as the STAAR.

My Project

I have many different learners in my class. Some are visual, some are auditory, and some are tactile. One thing I can say about all of them is that they are all eager to learn in new ways! We have countless conversations about their weekend and the games they have played whether its Phase 10 the card game or a football game they played in or a chance to play Fortnite with their classmates on Xbox!

I would like to have stations with a variety of different activities for them to choose from in my room where my students are engaged and want to learn the concept and not realizing its really educational.

Learning hands on is a great way to retain information.

This will allow me to work in small groups with other students without the worry of students getting off task. Tactile learning is a great way for the students to learn their math concepts and have fun at the same time.
