Help me give my students tools that will strengthen their strategies to become stronger with their math facts. Students need to have a solid sense of numbers and understand the process of addition and subtraction.
My second graders come from various cultural and economic backgrounds, as well as family structures. They all enter my room with different strengths and weaknesses. They may read at different levels, be fluent (or not) with their math facts, and have different interests. "My kids" also come to my class still learning how to be productive members of a learning community. There is a LOT on a second grader's plate!
There are many pressures that children are dealing with in today's world, and I do my best to help them in all aspects of their learning (academic, social, and emotional).It truly is about teaching the whole child.
My students are very special to me, and it is my responsibility to work with them in their journeys to become productive members of society and feel confident in themselves as contributing members to our society!
Working with students in the primary grades for the majority of my teaching career, I know that one of the most challenging skills for children to master is their addition and subtraction facts. While some students master them fairly quickly, other children do not. Many children also do not understand the process behind these two concepts, and I believe that to be a necessity.
Math fact fluency is the basis for most concepts and skills that students will work with throughout their education.
I believe the materials in this kit will be a valuable resource for me to help them!
