Creative Exploration for Math and Literacy Centers

Help me give my students some tools to help them create and explore different learning objectives throughout the year. With these materials, students can use them during math and literacy centers to practice information learned through creative exploration.

My Students

My students and I work together in a growth mindset classroom. I am a second-grade teacher. I work to influence and create a passion for lifelong learning in my classroom through a variety of teaching methods and hands-on activities. My classroom is a living space that contains 19 students and several teachers who assist with some of my amazing students! We use every inch of space to work, learn, and play. My class works on creating a welcoming environment to everyone who enters our room.

My Project

I am looking to expand my centers to give my students more options to practice the information they have learned. The materials and tools selected will help students practice spelling patterns, build numbers, and mold creative explorers.

Students will be able to build words and numbers through interactive play.

The interactive aspect in centers helps students stay focused throughout their time in each center and allow them to build on their learning. Help me add to each students' toolbox and classroom supplies. My students will absolutely love the added supplies to their classroom centers and will be so grateful for the wonderful gifts!
