Reading and Writing in Math

My students need Scholastic Math magazines as a real-world resource for incorporating writing and reading into my Math class.

My Students

My homeroom or Crew is a small group of students with a ton of potential. Their computation and reading skills range from second to seventh grade. Due to the wide variety of student ability, I want each of my students to show at least a year of growth in Math and ELA. I also want my students to have hands on experience with reading and writing in Math which is simply all about numbers to them. My biggest challenge is time. I only see my Crew for thirty-five minutes a day which means we have to pick up incomplete assignments the next day for several days. Knowing this, I always tell my students FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION. We have to show grit in all we do to be successful. So, if it takes three days to complete one lesson, we are going to use those days very effectively.

My babies (students) are a silly yet cooperative group.

They like to draw, sing, dance, and make spontaneous beats/rhythms. Our school is very student oriented, in that we shine a bright light on our student’s talents and academic abilities. We celebrate their successes, academic and personal. We welcome our parents in our school when their schedules permit to assist with a variety of task including lunch duty and promotional celebrations.

My Project

The Scholastic Math Magazines bring real world elements into the four walls of my classroom. My students don’t understand how all the core content classes intertwine, so when I ask them to write a complete sentence when explaining their math reasoning, it’s a struggle. We will devote at least two days a week reading and discussing the articles and completing the activities in each volume. We will use these ideas to create a research project or service project to display during our exhibition at the end of the year. Depending on the topic they choose, they will either learn or elaborate on common core standard, or create a service project and report, with data on the success of the project (whose life did it positively effect and how).

The Scholastic Math Magazines will provide my students with an up close and creative view of how Math is used in the “Real-World”.

It will give my students an inside view of how other students are using math concepts in other parts of the world to improve life and business. My students will then see that Math is more than practice problems on a worksheet, but an element in their day to day life.
