Math Enrichment

Mission Statement
Johnson Elementary School’s Math Enrichment Program is designed to offer students who are excelling in various areas of math a chance to add greater value and significance to those standards they have mastered through project and problem based learning. It also seeks to challenge those students to hone and innately use the 8 mathematical practices when approaching any type of mathematical task. The program will also slowly offer all students at JES an opportunity to experience project based learning and various STEAM activities throughout the year.

Program Objectives:
  • Offer hands on project based learning experiences for students who are ready to transfer mathematical standards to real life scenarios while working collaboratively to solve problems.
  • Provide alternative learning experiences for students who are socially and academically ready to learn at greater levels of depth and complexity.
  • Provide differentiated instruction and/or independent studies to students to meet their academic needs in the classroom.
  • Provide all students access to enriching math activities.
  • Provide all students access to STEAM education through engineering, coding, cooperative gaming, and robotics.


Enrichment Services:
* Not all services will be available to all students or at once*

  • Mini Math Alternative Small Group Instruction Blocks- Replaces parts of classroom instructions or occur during differentiated math work centers. Frequency can vary from 1-5 days a week. Instructional focus will be on the unit being covered in class and look to delve deeper into the standards through project based learning and the use of the 8 mathematical practices.
    • Selection Criteria: Teacher Recommendation, Observations, LNSU Benchmark Scores, PNOA scores, BRIDGES Pre-Assessment/ Check In Scores, Classroom Performance, PLC data, parental input, review of students social-emotional needs, availability of classroom/home support

  • Independent Studies/Individualized Instruction- Individualizes instruction for a learner who has mastered all of the standards that will be taught in a unit. This is available when no other students are needing enrichment at that level and/or at that time. This will supplement or replace classroom instruction. Instructional focus will be on the unit being covered in class and look to delve deeper into the standards through project based learning and the use of the 8 mathematical practices.
    • Selection Criteria: Teacher Recommendation, Observations, SBAC scores, LNSU Benchmark Scores, PNOA scores, BRIDGES Pre-Assessment/ Check In Scores, Classroom Performance, PLC data, parental input, review of students social-emotional needs, availability of classroom/home support

  • Co-Teaching- Collaboration within the classroom to increase opportunities for all students to access enrichment, as well as increase the effectiveness and practice of differentiated instruction within the curriculum.

  • Consultation- Working outside the classroom with teachers to develop more ways to differentiate instruction and assignments. Working with teachers outside the classroom to bring opportunities for project based learning into the classroom.

  • STEAM Whole Class Enrichment- Whole class works in the classroom or makerspace to develop 21st century skills and through engineering, coding, and robotics skills while using creative thinking and problem solving skills.
