Crazy about Rubix Cubes!

Help me give my students Rubix cubes and other math games. They are a Math thinking game the students are truly embracing in my classroom this year. The process of them sharing their strategies with each other will enhance their problem solving.

My Students

Second graders that love to create and solve Math problems describes my students this year. We just finished an Engineering unit in class and they loved the experience. The process of solving problems is a highlight for the class. I have 24 students in the classroom this year and have found the challenge in Math class to be motivating to positive behavior.

I teach in a Title One school outside a metro area.

The students thrive on routine and the structure of school. Teaching Science is the content area I teach on our Second grade team. I have one rule in second grade is that there is no crying in Science! It is a time to explore, imagine, plan, build or create and then review and make it better. The opportunity to think and explore is my goal as my students learn the standards and goals of second grade.

My Project

This year I have a class that is literally Crazy about the Rubix Cubes. I have two in the classroom which now have to be checked out daily due to the abundance of students interested in working on solving the puzzle.

Problem solving is a process and my students need more time to complete the process.

The availability of more than the two I have will enable them to be more successful. I will use them in a Math rotation throughout the week when these cubes are available to them. Sharing strategies with a partner is a great way to build on the collaboration skills we are instilling in our students.
