It's not only "my students" but rather all of my students. This year I will have the pleasure of teaching an entire grade level one subject. I have watched this group grow over these last 5 years. They have their challenges, not only academically but behaviorally as well.
This grade level is smart, inquisitive, funny, and kind.
They are wanting to explore and learn from each other. I am excited to have the privilege to work with all of them this year!
"I hate math." "I'm not good at math." Sound familiar? That is exactly why I want to change the mindsets of my math students! I want my students to use 3Doodler pens to represent math and show how math can be done in different ways. For example, using the 3Doodler pens in geometry by creating polygons and discovering what the volume, area, and perimeter of those shapes are.
I want students to leave my classroom having confidence in themselves and calling themselves mathematicians!
My goal is to provide students the opportunity to see that math is more than just figuring out problems using pencil and paper. Math involves exploring and trying different strategies in order to solve problems. It's about making math fun and accessible for all!
