My Students

At the beginning of every school year, I read a book to my students titled, The Junkyard Wonders. Now, I know what you're thinking, junkyard? However, a junkyard has special parts and pieces that make something better than it was. That's what I want my students to always know. When they are apart of something, they make it better.

I teach at a Title I school in South Carolina where 100 percent of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.

Our school is located in the midlands of South Carolina and we serve approximately 800 students in our school, grades K4 through 2nd grade. I live, go to church, and teach in this community and have done so all my life. Many of our students come from single parent homes where often parents hold more than one job to make ends meet.

My Project

Playing games is something people of all ages enjoy doing. In the classroom, playing games is an easy and fun way to help students learn mathematical concepts and skills. “Games give students opportunities to explore fundamental number concepts, such as the counting sequence, one-to-one correspondence, and computation strategies. Engaging mathematical games can also encourage students to explore number combinations, place value, patterns, and other important mathematical concepts. Further, they afford opportunities for students to deepen their mathematical understanding and reasoning. Teachers should provide repeated opportunities for students to play games, then let the mathematical ideas emerge as students notice new patterns, relationships, and strategies. Games are an important tool for learning in elementary school mathematics classrooms”~Kitty Rutherford, Posted April 27, 2015 National Council of Teachers of Mathematics.
