My Students

My students are creative and absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions!

My students want to succeed in math and often have difficulty expressing the concepts taught.

Each child in my classroom tries very hard to be successful. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! They truly have so much potential, and as a teacher, I feel it is my job to help each and every student be successful in skills and strategies that are presented. I am blessed and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year and I want to provide the best education they deserve.

My Project

The Common Core Math Manipulative Kit I am requesting for my students will be used daily. The kit offers unifix cubes, 2 and 3-D shapes, fraction cubes, base ten blocks, clocks, pattern blocks, money, number lines, geo-boards, dice, fraction spinners and more to reinforce counting, place value, money skills, core fraction concepts and build on measurement skills. The kit contains all the manipulatives needed to actively engage 24 students, working as groups in math learning. I believe the kit will help students better understand as they use critical thinking skills to display and solve math problems.

Hands-on educational experiences allow learning to become alive and real, helping creation and expression.

It allows the students to be able to explain their work and understand the "how" and "why." I believe every child has the ability to succeed and when learning is literally put into the hands of the students, it gives a sense of confidence, excitement and empowerment. Hands-on learning is just another tool to help students learn.
