1st Grade Mathtastic Bags
My students need these 8 sets of bags to store our math manipulates for calendar.
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.
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.
