My Students

My students come mostly from low-income, single-parent households. Some of these households have more than one family living under one roof. Because of these disadvantages, I try to make sure each student takes advantage of the knowledge they gain from each and everyday of class. A lot of the students I teach are below grade level and are struggling readers. It causes issues in the classroom when you have twenty-five percent of the class on grade level and the other seventy-five percent below.

My Project

This is part two to the Saturday Math Academy project. As I stated before, I recently began the Success Saturday Mathematics Academy in my school district for grades 3-6. It has truly been a blessing to help students boost their math skills. However, we are in desperate need for more resources. I teach third grade, so the resources I have will not be beneficial to some of the students in the upper grade levels. The answer buzzers will show students how to have a disciplined competition. The sentence strips will allow the students to write number sentences and explain how they solve the problems. The different math games will allow all of the students to demonstrate success in the various mathematical domains. The rulers will give students the hands on experience of measuring different real world items. Also, the time tracker will teach students how to pace themselves when solving problems. All of the items requested will give the students the opportunity to enhance their mathematical capabilities.

The Success Saturday Mathematics Academy is designed to assist and enable 3rd-6th grade students who need assistance and to accelerate achievement in mathematics for students who demonstrate aptitude and talent in mathematics.

The SSMA is a self-paced approach to mentoring and learning. We encourage and coach students to strive to achieve their optimum mathematical achievement at or above their grade level. Our approach accepts students where they and move them along at their own pace. In order to continue our Saturday Math Academy successfully, we need resources.
