My Students

My students come from a small, rural community. Our school is K-2 building where 67% of the students receive free or reduced price lunch. Despite any challenges my kiddos face, each and every one of them strive to be the best second-grader they can be each day. They vary in their math ability. My school has implemented a new math curriculum that promotes hand-on math learning. This requires a lot of material for them to manipulate.

Hands-on math is critical for students to understand mathematics.

My students are more engaged when they are able to manipulate math materials. This gives them a better understanding of mathematical ideas. The foundation students receive in the elementary grades will set the stage for their future math education and also throughout their life.

My Project

These materials will provide my students the hands-on approach they need to use in math. They will be able to use the Unifix Cubes to add, subtract, learn place value, and so much more. They will also be used to measure different items in the classroom. The pattern blocks will be used for teaching patterns, shapes, and fractions. The clocks will allow my students to learn how to tell time.

The possibilities are endless with these materials.

All the materials will be used to further their knowledge of math.

Having all these manipulatives will allow all my students to be able to use the same manipulates at the same time.
