My Students

Students will use the calculators each day to problem solve, real-life problems. All work the students complete are aligned to the Ohio State Standards. Students are allowed to use calculators on a part of our state standardized test. Unfortunately, I do not have enough for all students to have one at the same time. In order for them to be successful, they need to have one in their hands every day.

Providing the students with the calculator will help them become more successful as they tackle these real-life problems, as well as the state end of the year test!

Passing the state test shows that they have met the standards for their grade level and will help boost their confidence for the next school year! It is hard for some of my special needs students to have to use different calculators each day, so if I am able to provide the same calculator each day it will help them succeed on the tests.

My Project

Dry erase boards replace the traditional paper and pencil math practice. Students are better engaged and eager to attempt math problems. Students love the quick and easy erase method. Students tend to not get as frustrated with their mistakes. When practicing on the boards, students erase and retry.

Dry erase boards makes it easier for the teacher to see all student efforts which enables immediate feedback.

The teacher can readily see which students are struggling and which students have grasped the lesson concepts. Adding dry eraser boards to the classroom also enhances student engagement and classroom communication. Students often request boards when completing independent class work.
