My students need 1 math activities station, 1 math instant learning center, 1 set of math bingo library, 1 set of magnetic folder bins, 6 daily math practice journals, and 2 giant magnetic graph charts.
My students come mostly from low-income single-parent households. Some of these households have more than one family living under one roof. Because of these disadvantages, I try to make sure each student takes advantage of the knowledge they gain from each and every day of class. A lot of the students I teach are below grade level and are struggling readers. This causes issues in the classroom when you have 25% of the class on grade level and the other 75% below.
As the school year is coming to an end, I have decided to prepare for next year early. I am in the process of designing math centers for my class. My students will be working in math learning centers when we return to school in August. A learning center is a self-contained section of the classroom in which students engage in independent and self-directed learning activities. Learning centers are usually designed to offer a variety of materials, designs, and media through which students can work by themselves or with others to operationalize the information learned in the classroom.
The materials are needed to make sure the learning centers are designed to enhance the learning of concepts, skills, themes, or topics.
The daily math journals will develop students' skills in number & operations in base 10, operations & algebraic thinking, measurement & data, geometry, 2-step word problems, math computation and problem-solving. The instant learning centers will help students to develop number sense, master problem solving, and explore algebraic thinking. The giant graph paper will allow both students and the teacher to demonstrate essential math concepts.
