Buzzing Through Place Value!

My students need place value blocks and hands-on activities to learn one, two, and three digit number concepts.

My Students

My students need hands-on materials in order to fully understand the math concepts being taught in 1st grade! Based on studies shown young children learn best with the use of manipulatives and hands-on exploration. Help us be successful in our educational journey by donating these tools for our class.

My buzzing 1st grade students are very energetic, love to learn but most of all love playing with center games and manipulatives!

As a first year teacher I do not feel as if I can give them “the best of the best” since I do not have all those extra manipulatives and games to reinforce what they learn in Guided Math lessons. Due to my school serving a low income population, there are limitations to how much support and donations the community or parents can provide. Despite their circumstances, however, my goal is to provide the very best learning environment where all my students will succeed!!

My Project

For my project, I am requesting place value manipulatives and games. The following place value math tool will greatly enhance my students’ success in learning number sense. These manipulatives will bring hands-on learning experiences where students can actually “see” the numbers as blocks, which they can hold in their hands. Teaching place value is a very difficult concept for early elementary grades to understand, but a learning necessity that they will use in upper grades.

The place value sets will give the students a hands-on learning during Guided Math time (whole group) or during Center time (leveled groups) to reinforce the mathematical concepts.

These math tools will be very beneficial to our classroom!
