My students attend school in an urban city that is diverse and cultural. Our particular school, one out of 11 elementary schools in our district, is an example of a true neighborhood school, with a sprinkle of two programs, special education and bilingual, that attract students from other areas of the city.
Giving my students opportunities to show off their mathematics skills is a priority!
They are energetic and excited about learning math, and they strive to succeed in everything they do!
Two of the more popular math manipulatives we have been using during our guided math workshop block are two color counters and polyhedral dice. The flow of our classroom is truly dependent on having our games and activities organized with all the appropriate materials included!
With guided math workshop, the need for extra manipulatives is necessary for the organization of math games and activities!
We use the polyhedral dice during many multiplication games, and when we have multiple games going on, the need for extras is truly dependent for the ease of our classroom management! The two color counters have numerous uses throughout the grade levels. Recently, we have been using them for representing positive and negative numbers!
