Fun, Hands-On Math Centers
My students need materials for math centers, including Hot Dot cards, a set of Math Skills Folder Game Libraries and fun problem solving cards.
Most students have a love or hate relationship with math, and I want to change that in my classroom. I want everyone to love math by using hands-on fun activities focused on what they need to know for the ISTEP test.
My students come from an environment that does not allow them to have real world situations applied to math.
They don't get the opportunity to see math as something more than just the basic operations. To them, math is mundane and I want to change that by giving them more hands on fun ways to learn math. By getting the hot dot cards, and common core based games, they will see the fun part in math, not the boring.
These resources will allow them to have math centers that are common core focused, fun, and that they can relate to the real world. They will see that math is not a boring subject that has no value to their life. I believe that these resources will benefit the students in my class by learning the materials they need to pass the state tests by getting the materials in a different, and fun way and apply them to bring up their math scores. The hot dot cards will give the students a chance to self-check their answers on their own while and take ownership of their learning. The center cards will give the students a chance to see the common core standards in a new and interesting way and use them with their peers as a way to self teach themselves new skills.
This project is so important to my classroom because overall, my students don't like math and its hard to come up with new ways for them to learn the skills they need for the ISTEP test.
I believe these materials will help them learn those skills in a fun way with their peers and bring up their scores on the state test.
