The students in my classroom are very curious and active learners. They enjoy coming to school, and want to learn in new and exciting ways. I love the curiosity they have and their eagerness to learn new things!
As first graders, they enjoy learning in many different ways.
Providing manipulatives is a great way to practice new concepts, and also to review previously learned concepts.
The students in my classroom learn best through hands-on experiences and through using materials that they can manipulate and explore. Having more materials in my classroom to enhance this type of learning would benefit them greatly.
These materials are essential for creating an environment that is well-managed. Giving students specific routines for daily procedures helps for keep students on task and for the classroom to function in a productive way. Routines help to eliminate wasting time and keep distractions to a minimum! Of course, these routines require different materials that can be used to personlize items in the classroom and help students to feel like they are part of the team!
One of the biggest obstacles in a first grade classroom is the need for sharpened pencils!
Having an electric sharpener in the room would greatly help to keep class time and work time moving with less distraction!
