My class consists of eleven smart and fun-loving girls and fourteen intelligent and energetic boys. My students come to school each day ready to learn and are always looking to expand their knowledge.
I am fortunate to teach twenty-five, eager little learners.
My students' thirst for knowledge pushes me to find new and engaging ways to meet their educational needs. In our classroom, we trust, respect and learn from one another on a daily basis. We support and encourage each other to do our best, always.
My second graders need opportunities to approach math problems with the use of manipulatives in order to gain a better understanding of the math concepts we learn throughout the year.
My young students require multiple opportunities to explore and examine mathematical situations with various learning tools in order to help them master their daily learning objectives.
By implementing these manipulatives to my daily math lessons, I would be providing my students with an assortment of tools that will help them meet their individual learning needs. The activities and centers I could create would also help them work on their socials skills by exposing them to partner and team work. The use of these manipulatives would also foster mathematical conversations and opportunities for my students to explain their thinking and learn from one another.
These manipulatives would provide me the ability to meet my student's individual needs by offering them a multitude of learning opportunities. The implementation of math activities and centers involving manipulatives will assist in solidifying the challenging math concepts that they must master by the end of the school year.
