Who is it for?
- 3rd Graders (8 to 9-year-olds)
- Math learners
- Gifted & talented students
- Adding enrichment to your classroom should not have to be time consuming and difficult to manage. This program is easy to manage and extremely rewarding for your students. I began using the weekly “Math Research Projects” strategy last year in my classroom and I’m happy to make it available to others to use in their classroom as well.
When my students finish their work at any given point during the week they are responsible for completing their math weekly research project and posting their response on a large sticky note.
On Mondays I introduce the projects for the week ahead. On Fridays we share their responses to their projects.
At the end of the year each student creates a scrapbook with all of the research that they have completed throughout the school year by compiling their sticky notes.
I use the larger post-it notes as some of the responses are quite lengthy.
About the Seller
After spending almost 30 years as a public educator, I am currently a "Differentiation Consultant" in which I've worked with districts adding enrichment materials to their curriculum and I am an adjunct field representative supervising student teachers.
Over the years I have taught 3rd, 4th, 5th, and 6th grade; as well as serving as a Curriculum Specialist, Testing Coach and finally a Gifted Specialist for many years.
I worked as a contributor to major textbook companies for seven years which caused me to realize there is a lack of authentic, challenging teaching materials that require little teacher prep and offer the rigor needed to meet the depth of our curriculum standards that students currently face. The products I offer require little teacher prep, are fun and creative and provide the level of rigor needed to challenge even your brightest learners.
