Mrs. Fitzhugh from Wilmington DE is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Real World Math Connections

Help me give my students the Scholastic Math magazine subscription. It would be great to bring these magazines into my middle school math classroom, so kids can keep a pulse on what is happening in the world.

My Students

My students are participating in a special program within our school. My Title I school serves about 900 students. We also house many special programs. One of the special programs we offer is for gifted learners. This program has around 300 students in grades 6-8 and I teach about 155 of these students.

My students enjoy learning and look forward to being exposed to new material.

They are inquisitive, hard working and are always looking for new challenges. My students also love to play fun and interesting games in our free time or advisory. My students also like to give back to the community.

My Project

It would be great to have the Scholastic math magazines in my classroom. When kids finish their assessments and choose to read in class, this would be a good resource that is tied to math.

The Scholastic math magazines will help the kids see how math is useful in the real world.

The topics in the magazines match the standards in grades 6-8 and I teach each of these grade levels. I believe that if I keep items in the classroom, kids will pick them up and start exploring. This happens with many of my puzzles and fidget cubes. This could also happen with books and magazines.
