My Project

I love encouraging my class to get creative. Using these materials we will be able to extend our creative minds in not only art, but also math. We will be playing games using subtracting cards and 10 frames.

Getting creative with the art materials to show their learning is always so fun for my first grade students.

With these new materials they will be encouraged to make numbers in many different ways as they extend their thinking and learning while gaining a stronger numbers sense. Having fun is the best way- they don't even know how hard their brains are working.
