Things Are Adding Up In The Math Resource Room!

My students need materials including two-sided counters, dice, a number line, a calendar, and a hundreds chart for a Math Resource Room that is to be used by the entire school.

My Students

My school is located in an urban area. The school has a estimated enrollment of 400 students for the 16-17 year in grades TK-5, with fifteen classrooms. Additionally, we house a state pre-K program. Ninety two point five percent of the students are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch and 48% are English Language Learners. Forty six percent of the students are Latino, 35% are African-American, 10% are Asian, and 3% are Filipino.

The school has established a culture of continuous school improvement and has a team of teachers, parents, and administrators who are committed to creating the best possible learning environment for students.

Teachers meet weekly for a sixty minute period during the workday in their professional learning community to analyze student performance data, set goals, and share instructional strategies. These teacher teams follow a developed agenda and use protocols and defined roles to manage the meetings. These meetings are my school's cornerstone for building a professional learning community and improving student achievement.

My Project

Our school has a wonderful opportunity to host a Math Resource Room that all of our students will benefit from! In this room, entire classes will come for Math labs that are in addition to their everyday Math instruction in the classroom. We want to ensure that this room is stocked with the things our students will need for an engaging experience every time they enter the room. We have found many materials ourselves, but there are still some things that we need in order to complete our Math Resource Room.

The students at our school often come to us with limited experiences or gaps in their education, so it is critical that we provide them with a space to be able to really explore, experience, and engage with the Mathematics.

We believe that children learn best from cooperative experiences with each other, so we want to provide materials such as counters and dice for Math games. We also want children to be able to read the room, just as they do in Language Arts, and have consistent, manipulatable items such as the number line, calendar, hundreds chart, and place value pockets in the room. We know our children deserve the best when it comes to quality Math instruction, and we are hopeful that you will help us to provide it!
