This class is designed to help students improve in their math skills. I work with grades 5 through 8 and we cover a variety of topics – depending on student’s grade level as well as their needs.
7th and 8th Graders: Will be before and/or after school – more on this soon!!!
5th and 6th Graders: Keep checking here… More soon for you as well...

The first day of school for students was August 14th. If you see on your schedule that I am one of your teachers, I need you to bring a composition book with you to my class. Other items you might want to have are markers or map pencils or crayons or a mix of these items. You may also want, but do not have to have stickers to decorate your journal throughout the year. If you would like to donate a box of tissue, stickers, glue sticks, and/or tape to our class that would be great. We will use these often throughout the year. I have a supply in my classroom for students to use – but any help I can get to add to these supplies will never be turned down. I also keep a supply of crayons, scissors, map pencils, and markers. (Once the markers dry out – then I will only supply map pencils and crayons. I will not be buying any more markers this year.)
The reason for the journals is for students to have a personalized set of notes of the math concepts and vocabulary we will be working on in class this year. Research also shows that when a lot of color is used, the brain receives the messages better. So I want students to add drawings and color, including stickers, to their notes.
