My classroom does not have many manipulatives for me to help my students find alternative ways to solve problems. I plan to use these manipulatives to allow my students to work on problems hands-on. We will use these tools to sort, count and understand our math problems. The 3-D geometric blocks will help my students understand geometric shapes and colors. I plan to use the Magna-tiles to build their critical development skills and promote imaginative play. With your help, my students will have enough materials to work in small groups as well as collaborate with one another. In the classroom, physical activity translates to students who are less fidgety, more focused and can concentrate for longer periods of time. One innovative approach I want to include is allowing my students the freedom of movement. I want each student's seat to be equipped with a band on the legs so they can move and exercise their legs. Sitting in desks all days is tiresome and does not provide the best situation for students to focus. The alphabet tubs will be used in our group work to help the students see what everyday items correspond to the letters. The felt letters will be a visual aid to pass around when practicing our sounds. Another resource I wanted to bring into our classroom is "textured tangles." These help to keep busy hands engaged in their activity. If students are feeling fidgety I can hand them one and allow them to de-stress. In order to make our innovative morning binder last, I laminate them with the scotch pockets in my cart. We will use the giant board pieces to provide visual aids for my students. I want to be able to allow my students to follow along while we work through problems together.
