I want to provide fun and engaging ways to get my students excited about learning math! I want them to understand that math can be fun! In today's world, with so much competition for their attention, I need to provide opportunities for fun in math class. As a 12-year teacher of middle school, I am now on an elementary campus, and I am hoping to intervene at this younger age and lessen the "I hate math!" mentality that I witnessed year after year with 7th and 8th graders. I have chosen classroom resources that I wish I'd had when I was in school: A couple of years ago, our State Standards were revised to include a Personal Financial Literacy in all grade levels. To help with the introduction to these concepts, I have selected two age-appropriate book collections focusing on the topic of "Money"; to practice and reinforce, I have selected "The Allowance Game". To help develop and maintain quick and easy recall of math facts, I have selected the "tri-FACTatm Multiplication & Division Game". My students seem to enjoy slightly competitive games with moving pieces, so I have selected the "Pop to Win! Math Game" and the "4 Way Countdown Game". To help make a connection between literacy and math, I have selected a grade-appropriate "starter" library collection of 23 math-related books. Finally, to help with time management, so that I can spend as much time with my students as possible, I have selected the pre-made "Math Folder Game Libraries" as well as the "Mastering Math Games" sets. I believe these engaging resources with help my students to become life-long learners who find joy in math-related tasks.
