My Students

My students walk through the doors of my elementary school ready to learn. They are eager learners that use the resources available to them to become better mathematicians. They know that to be successful in the real world they must develop excellent number sense. They are taught to love math and use it every day as a source of enjoyment.

My students are hungry for knowledge about the world they will soon inherit.

We have amazing support from our families. Even with family support additional money is needed to provide my students with resources to be amazing mathematicians.

My Project

Using Breakout EDU kits will allow my students to engage with new curriculum as well as reviewing concepts. Most importantly, my students will work in teams to collaboratively solve a mystery. The kits use different lock boxes, locks, invisible ink and UV flashlights to engage students in a different style of learning, as they work together to crack the code.

I believe that this project will allow my students to come together and learn to value the importance of others ideas in a commutative working environment.

The Breakout experience will engage my students in classroom game play to help them better understand 4th grade subject matter.
