My Students

Do you remember learning simple number concepts? Addition, subtraction, number recognition and story problems are some of the concepts that are taught in first grade.

My first graders are hands-on, engaged learners who love to interact and share their math knowledge.

Our school is in a rural community with a high number of Native students. Our school is a SAGE K-12 building with a great group of teachers and wonderful students.

My Project

These resources will allow for students to work independently or with a partner to practice their math skills while I am meeting with other students. The Hot Dot Cards will allow the children to know immediately if they are correct or incorrect. All of these materials will allow for the first graders to gain confidence and skills in math.

Your donation will give these kiddos an opportunity to have a NEW hands-on math activity to try during Math Workshop.

These materials will allow for all students to have a successful activity during math that will keep them excited and wanting to learn new material!
