My Students

"Combining math and literature in classroom activities is a way for teachers to invite children into the world of math," Marilyn Burns, Author and Educator. Stories are fun and can generate student interest. Stories can also provide context and bring meaning to abstract math concepts.

I work in a city school that serves a diverse community.

I have worked with students from many countries such as: Cambodia, Ethiopia, Nepal, Mexico, Dominican Republic and Vietnam. Because we have students from all over the world we have many English Language Learners. Our school is also a Title I school, which means many of our students come from homes with limited resources. Despite language and other challenges, we have families that support their children. Our school is vibrant and our students are eager to learn!

My Project

The math literature books will be used to introduce math concepts. I will read stories aloud to give students an opportunity to use math talk and share their thinking. Some books will be placed with the class' math supplies, so students will be able to easily access them. The books will be used to improve literacy and reinforce math concepts.

"Books are stories about people and their lives, and these lives involve numbers," Sharon Powell, High School Teacher.

Donations will provide students with good literature. These books will give them an opportunity to reinforce math concepts and improve understanding. Literature is an excellent way to help my students see the importance of numbers in their everyday life!
