These materials will enhance the interactive and hands-on learning lab classroom that I strive to create. My math center time is time that my students really enjoy-they rotate through four 15-minute stations that include small group time with me, independent practice, tech time, and game time with peers. Students are grouped based on skills and personalities, and they are thankful for the opportunities to play and learn more about each other. This kind of cooperative learning is at the heart of our class culture and all but eliminates behavior problems and increases respect for all. With these new materials, my students will be able to engage with each other at their levels of skill to fill in gaps in their learning and take them farther toward their math and social skills goals. My students already have shown an astonishing interest in team-building, brain teasers, problem-solving and cooperative tasks. This project will only help enrich their experiences with the world of math.
