1st Grade Mathtastic Bags

My students need these 8 sets of bags to store our math manipulates for calendar.

My Students

Do you remember sitting at the carpet in first grade doing calendar everyday?

The students in our classes come from a wide variety of backgrounds.

These children are not growing up in a typical environment. A lot of times, these students are not being raised by their biological parents. We are a Title I school. At this time 96% of our families receive free and reduced lunch.

My Project

Our students brighten up through hands on learning that is not available to them at home. By having a calendar bag, filled with math manipulatives, our students will gain a deeper understanding for a range of mathematical ideas. A few ideas we have for our bags are pompoms for counting, tens and ones beads, and greater than less than alligators.

Our teachers were given the opportunity to attend a training where calendar bags were used.

We were so excited to implement this idea into our classroom, until we realized there were no funds to buy the bags.
