1, 2, 3, Math for Me!

My students need math manipulatives and tools to allow hands-on learning and create a strong basis of mathematical concepts.

My Students

My kindergarteners come into the room every morning eager to learn, to discover, and to take on the world one day at a time. Each day, these young and ambitious learners work hard to make sense of the new world of their education. They work diligently learning letters, numbers, sounds, patterns, and so much more every single day.

This year is the dawn of these children's educational career.

The students in this classroom come from a variety of backgrounds and families. Our school offers free lunch and breakfast to all students, due to the need of our population. In my class alone, I have students from single parent homes; students living with guardians; students with physical disabilities; students who have parents who are terminally ill; students who are homeless; and students who face even other challenges outside the four walls of our classroom. Despite all of their individual challenges, they walk through the door every morning determined to learn more, and inquisitive about discovering as much as they can about the world they live in.

My Project

My students need a wealth of math manipulatives to build a strong basis for their beginning math concepts. As students begin their educational careers, the use of manipulatives and hands-on tools are essential to create a concrete understanding of numbers and number concepts. Since I am a new teacher, and teaching my first year of kindergarten, my classroom currently lacks much of the supplies that students would benefit from using.

Students will use various counters to compare objects, to create patterns, to count, to compare numbers, and so much more.

With the counters and Common Core supplies, students will create or respond to different "real-world" scenarios in order to create number stories and situations. Many of these tools will be used in centers for students both independently and with teacher instruction. These tools will be used to enhance students' mathematical learning. My students will benefit from having personal ten frames to show numbers and as they develop their addition and subtraction skills throughout the year. All of the materials will be used with students and by students to enhance their mathematical development.

Kindergarteners need objects to count, things to compare, and tools to see what all these numbers and ideas are really about. The students in this class will be able to become even more excited about learning and math every day with the use of these items.
