I am honored to teach a community of fantastic first grade scholars at a low income school in Nevada. We are a STEAM academy and have pre-kindergarten through 5th grade students from all over Las Vegas and Henderson. We set schoolwide goals. Our school sets grade level goals. We are setting and reaching goals each and every day and celebrating success to prepare our students in becoming successful citizens in our ever-changing world.
Together, we discover our world as readers, authors, mathematicians, scientists, technologists, engineers, and artists.
The 1st Grade Daily Math Fluency Centers Kit and Math Talks will provide opportunities for my students to grow as mathematicians by building number sense through activities that reinforce and support the beginning of new skills and strategies, as well as the use of models that promote the development of number sense.
Students will develop numeracy and the ability to use mathematical relationships to reason with numbers and numerical concepts.
Students will be engaged in mastering fluency strategies using visual models and manipulatives including subitizing, part-part-whole relationships, decompensing numbers, counting on and counting back, using doubles and near doubles, using five and ten, making ten, ten and adjust, taking from ten, getting to ten, removing ten, equivalence, and using known facts.
