My Students

5th Grade Math class is full of motivated students who are in need of the right tools to perform at their best and maximize their learning experience. Most of my students come from a low economic home where parents work hard to provide them the basic needs. Most of my students have never been successful in understanding class content, coming to my math classroom with gaps that started back in kinder.

In my classroom, we do not teach 5th grade, but we start by reteaching second, third and any other grade level concepts needed for my students to achieve a determined math goal.

They are motivated and eager to start understanding what they never understood before, which turns into a classroom that becomes a unique life experience for them.

My Project

These lysol wipes, and klennex will provide my students with a neat and clean environment where all they have to worry about is learning mathematics. Furthermore, a reward system for hard work and effort will motivate them to give their best at every second they are in the math classroom.

The different prices, toys, fidgets, rubic cubes, lamps, and others will make them feel valued and appreciated for all their effort.

Students who do not know what it is to be praised, will learn the value of trying our best in life.

Other basic supplies such as pencils and pens will provide them with the basics for writing and learning without worry. The ink, will provide the tool to print needed material in the classroom.
