Using Math as a Reward

Help me give my students some unbudgeted items for incorporating math and life skills for our Reward Days.

My Students

I am blessed to work in a PreK-8 rural school with just over 345 students that values not only reading, writing and arithmetic, but also the arts and consumer sciences. So many schools lack funding for these 'extra' classes and activities due to budgets that get stretched too thin to meet the general needs of academics. Over 50% of our students qualify for free or reduced lunch. Our Middle School students have several outside learning interests that they ask to learn about, and staff tries to meet some of those outside interests through these Wildcat Reward Days. We are able to also mix up the classes so that students are working together in grades 6-8, which is a great way to also build relationships with each other, improving the environment within our school.

As a staff, we like to think outside the box and give our students enriching learning opportunities that aren't always covered in core classes.

We want to provide creative, fun, unique experiences that currently are not available due to lack of funding. These learning experiences will not only enhance our curriculum, and help us meet our learning targets, but will support student engagement in the learning process.

My Project

Students will be able to choose from several different activities that teachers choose to offer. Some of which include: Lotion & Potions where students will apply math measurement skills to learn about essential oils and usage . Students will use ratios and proportional reasoning to mix and package lotions, roller bottles and scrubs. Also, Tie Dyeing where students will apply math skills of patterns, measurement and proportional reasoning to mix dye and create patterns when tie dyeing. Or Cooking where students will again use math skills and proportional reasoning to cook and manipulate simple recipes that they will share with their families. Students will also have the opportunity to also work with different paint mediums on canvases and in journals. They will need to apply math skills of proportional reasoning when working with different paints.

Students who work hard and follow our school's expectations should be rewarded.

Students always look forward to our Reward Day offerings as well! Many of these offerings are student driven, and our staff steps up to the challenge of meeting the outside interests of our kids.

All of these activities incorporate measuring, mixing, reading and working together to be successful. Math skills and life skills in the real world often need reinforcement in the classroom and these activities help us reach students on several different levels.
