I am currently teaching a rambunctious group of kindergartners in the Bronx. They have so much energy. Since we do not have a facility for them to use up this energy, I want to find a way to positively use that energy in the classroom. One thing that I have noticed with trying to teach them math is that it is really hard trying to find fun and creative ways to get them to understand the material. With literacy, you can dramatize the material and really bring them into it, but math has proven to be a challenge in the fun department. They really enjoy the creative lessons that I have been able to come up with, but I really want to give that to them on a regular basis. As a first year teacher it has been really difficult to come up with or find an abundance of creative and practical lesson plans for kindergarten math. I would like to get the Meet the Standards Math Chest from Lakeshore in order to provide them with more hands-on learning experiences. The chest is full of hands-on math activities that I am sure will better help them understand the material. There are materials for eight different standards, which would really be helpful in differentiating instruction because my students' levels vary so greatly. Overall the math chest will better aid my class in conquering the high goals that I have set for them. Thank you.
