My Students

My wonderful first-grade classroom is packed full of 25 eager learners. Many of these students have diverse needs and backgrounds. More than one-third of the students at our school come from families who qualify for the free or reduced-price lunch program. We are not a title 1 school, so we lack extra federal funding that a lot of schools receive.

My kids love math!

I want to enhance this by integrating more science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) into my classroom.

My Project

I want my students to be prepared for the world they live in. These exciting math tools will help build my students' experience with numbers at home. I will send home games for them to play with their parents and friends. They'll need the cards and mini Rekenreks for these games. I will add other tools such as number paths, ten frames, and dice to this take home math box.

I am teaching my students to have resiliency and perseverance- which in class we call grit!

They are adorable when they say it! We will use the chair bands which will help improve concentration and demonstrate grit.

We will be using the white boards in class to enhance math learning.
