My 2nd grade students are adorable, little balls of energy, curious, kind, and love to learn! I work at an inner-city elementary school where all of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. Coming from areas of poverty, many of my students lack essential math skills and struggle academically.
It is essential to give students a strong foundation in math to set them up for future success!
Engaging, interactive, and fun activities will help my students learn valuable skills such as bills and coins recognition, counting, adding and subtracting, problem-solving skills and cooperative play. Research has shown that young students learn best when they are engaged in learning, use hands-on materials, and see real-world connections.
I love my students and want to see them succeed in the classroom and beyond. Please help me open up possibilities for my students' futures by providing them with a strong educational foundation.
Thank you for your consideration!
All of the items in my project support students' needs for hands-on, activities and being actively engaged in their learning. Young students learn best by doing! These hands-on activities promote essential math skills in a fun and encouraging way!
Young learners love hands-on activities and I love how much they learn using them!
Subtraction Hot Dots: Students love practicing their 0-9 subtraction facts using a pen that provides immediate feedback with a green light or happy sounds for correct answers or a gentle encouragement to try again for incorrect answers. Hot Dots are awesome for math centers, independent practice, and early finishers!
Money Student Packet: Realistic pretend coins and bills which could be used in a variety of ways to teach financial literacy.
120 Boards: These boards are awesome at introducing patterns, sequencing, skip counting, identifying odds and evens, place value, and much more!
Folder Games: Boosting math skills is a blast—with fun folder games children play on their own! Each ready-to-use game includes everything students need to practice a variety of skills—including sequencing and comparing numbers, counting by ones and tens, matching numbers to quantities, money combinations, and more!
Number Spots: These bright and fun number circles can be used in an endless variety of ways such as to teach number sequencing, odds and evens, skip counting, problem-solving, games, and more! For example, students could solve a math problem and they would have to sit on the answer/number spot for circle time. Another idea would be to hand out a number spot to each student to work together as a group to form a sequence of numbers or go to a designated spot to show if a number is even or odd.
