My Students

My second grade students are creative, energetic, and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! Our campus is a low income school filled with students who qualify as economically disadvantaged, however, they arrive each day excited to try new things and take chances in order to reach and maintain success.

It is important that my students know that they are in control of their own destiny.

Outside of the classroom, many of my students face challenges that some people couldn't even imagine, but in the classroom, they are full of joy and hope. l teach three classes of scholars with a variety of personalities and learning styles. Our classroom community allows room for mistakes, growth, friendship, and love. They are true warriors and their energy is contagious!

My Project

The math games and manipulatives that I have selected will provide my students with hands-on experiences with most or all second-grade skills. I will use these math tools during small group instruction with no more than five children at a time. This gives me the opportunity to hone in on the specific needs of each student. The timer will allow me to stay on track and meet with as many students as possible. These activities will also be used as center rotations. Students will rotate through stations that focus on a specific skill which provides them with a spiraled review of all concepts that have been taught. The manipulatives will be used for teacher modeling, guided practice, and independent practice.

It is extremely important that I provide a welcoming learning environment that meets the needs of all students.

My goal each year is to produce meaningful, differentiated instruction that allows my students to be themselves and excel while doing so. Over the last seven years, I have researched the need for hands-on manipulatives. It is proven to be very imperative in the development of newly introduced skills. CPA (Concrete, Pictorial, Abstract) is a three-step instructional approach that has been found to be highly effective in teaching math concepts. With your support, I will be one step closer to my goal.
