I work at a Title I school with a predominantly Hispanic background. More than ninety percent of these students receive free or reduced lunch. Often times the parents don't have enough resources to provide all the supplies need for their scholars to be successful. This year we are gearing to ace the Standardize test needed to pass to the 9th grade. I plan on taking learning to the next level by doing more project-based learning so that scholars make those real-world connections and retain the information. My students are excited about the idea to do projects to help make real world connections. They have expressed their eagerness to work on projects throughout the year and master objectives. Despite their obstacles, they are ready and willing to learn and be fully ready for testing and be successful this school year!
These materials for Ward's Math Interactive Lab will enhance the math instruction and peer collaboration in the classroom.
The Wacom-Intuos Pro Tablet and additional lab supplies will aid with working and making the lessons more fun and interactive throughout the math lab/class.
The dry erasers, expo markers, colored pencils, crayons, markers, whiteboard dry erasers and dry erase pocket sleeves will aid with project-based learning activities and hands-on activities to teach needed concepts for mastery of Math TEKS (objectives). All of these supplies will help them work independently and collaboratively when assigned to partners and/or small groups. In summary, this will help prepare them for the real-world setting when they become adults and professionally work and interact with other colleagues.
