My Students

I am a special education teacher at an elementary school is Bartlesville, OK. This year, I am teaching Math to grades PK to 5th. I have 37 total students.

The majority of my kiddos have a learning disability and/or a diagnosis of ADHD that impairs their ability to learn.

I also have a couple of students with Autism. All of my kids are unique and special, and with that, they all have unique ways in which they learn. I love my job and I love the students I work with. It can be challenging at times trying to figure out the way in which they learn best. However, it is extremely rewarding when we have a breakthrough and something clicks with them, or their scores improve. We love to celebrate successes in our room!

My Project

My students have a hard time visualizing 3-D shapes in their regular form, as well when laid out in an open net form. These Magna-Tiles will allow my students to see the 3-D shapes in their 3-D form and how they correlate to their flat net form. During free play time, these tiles will also provide a fun outlet for my students to use their creativity and build things.

Being able to have hands-on tools for students to manipulate to demonstrate math concepts is huge, especially for my struggling learners.

These Magna-Tiles will give them that tool in order to build, represent, and understand 3-D shapes. We will be able to identify shapes, count vertices, count edges, and count faces and bases in the 3-D form, as well as the flat net form.
