My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to create meaningful learning experiences in a safe, educational classroom environment with access to resources and technology to help them succeed.

My students are thoughtful, energetic, and eager to learn.

They love to move, love to try new things, and love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom, I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a purposeful, positive way, I am hopeful to inspire our second graders to continue on a path of academic excellence.

My Project

Our school is placing a major focus on small group learning this year in both reading and math. We want to focus on meeting the students where they are at, supporting them daily in their small group setting, in order to get them where they need to be. We have some major gaps to close this year, especially in math.

Studies show that the use of manipulatives in teaching math has a positive effect on student achievement by allowing them to use concrete materials to observe, model, and internalize abstract math concepts.

It also engages students, increasing interest as well as enjoyment while learning various math skills. I chose some practical products as well as fun and engaging manipulatives to help my students understand the challenging second grade skills that are ahead of them. The sterilite containers will hold each station's materials. The iPad covers are for the iPads we were provided this year but were without covers. Our students use the iPads for math games and fluency. The dominoes, dice, base ten blocks, and hundred chart will serve as learning tools in small groups by giving them the hands-on, concrete support they need.

I am confident that these materials are important to my students' success this year. We have a tremendous amount of work ahead of us, but I believe with the right tools and a lot of effort, we can accomplish a great deal. Thank you in advance!
