A Marvelous Math Center

My students need furniture and math manipulatives to support their independent math work.

My Students

My classroom is home to 26 incredible first graders. Our arts-focused K-8 public school is located in a predominantly low-income and urban community with a large bilingual population, which presents both challenges and opportunities.

My students are incredibly curious, active, quirky, and compassionate, and have diverse interests, backgrounds, and needs.

We spend our days together singing, asking questions, reading, writing, discussing, working with numbers, learning about our world, and striving to make our classroom community more inclusive, supportive, and kind.

My Project

Our math curriculum is built around a collection of engaging games that students love to play, but we've had trouble organizing our supplies without a dedicated math center.

This beautiful wooden shelf will hold all of the math manipulatives and other tools that we use for independent work and collaborative games.

Students will be able to visit the math center to identify and collect the tools, like clipboards, dice, counters, Unifix cubes, pattern blocks, et cetera, that they need for their work. Many bins will also hold homemade supplies (like ten frames, number lines, and gameboard) that are currently homeless in our classroom.
