PLEASE CONTRIBUTE TO OUR CLASSROOM!
Although the school does generously supply us with some supplies, we are always in need of additional:
**Inexpensive prizes or snacks for raffle day**
Pencils (preferably pre-sharpened)
For your convenience, I've made an Amazon Wishlist with specific examples of items we could use.
ATTENTION: GATE FAMILIES!
In addition to teaching math on campus, I also am one of the teacher leads for our GATE Program here at Richardson!
My partner Scott Smith and I always strive to collect craft supplies and any other random objects for use in our building-oriented enrichment sessions. Whether it is packaging popcorn, plastic containers, loose string, tissue paper, newspaper, balloons, pipe cleaners, ribbons, shoe boxes, wheels of any sort, paper clips, rubber bands, or old random parts of machines or art projects that no longer serve their original purpose (unique objects like these are our favorite!), ANY random objects we will gladly take and recycle for one of our sessions either this year, or save it for use in years to come. You may drop off supplies at any time to the school addressed to Amy Sayers or Scott Smith.
Thank you so much in advance!
LOVE VIDEO GAMES?
If we ever have extra time in class or during tutorials with Chromebooks, my students and I love playing Prodigy. Prodigy is a free, Pokemon-style math game online for grades 1-8 that has been proven to improve student scores and math confidence. If you or your child wishes to play the game at home, please feel free to join using one of my class codes:
6th Grade: 524523
7th Grade: 8C733F
Another game I highly suggest for help building math and logic skills is ST Math. This one is paid for by our district and can be accessed through the students' Clever accounts (the icon with the penguin).
