My Students

My students are always excited about learning and always want to learn how things work and have so many great questions! My first graders love hands-on, dynamic tasks and activities that allow them to let their creative juices flow. Every day, my students are ready to attempt different challenges both individually and in small groups.

Our school is in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and is a high-poverty school with the children receiving one hundred percent free breakfast and lunch.

Every student in my classroom definitely loves discovering and learning new things even if the approach and setting where they like to learn best can differ completely. We find it important to encompass a range of learning approaches, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to guarantee that each student's needs are met wherever they are. My students are truly an incredible group and I am so lucky and thankful to have a great group of learners that are always excited and ready to learn!

My Project

We will use the manipulatives in our first grade class to practice making decisions, learn about size, shape, weight, length, and height. We can also learn about sequencing, comparison, order, patterns, colors, textures as well as learn to analyze and solve problems. By using manipulatives we can develop concentration and perseverance and learn about cause and effect.

By having multiple manipulatives in class, my students will experience different methods of learning.

My students enjoy learning through hands-on activities that are both educational and engaging. Each of the sets of manipulatives will be engaging and fun for my students' learning inside the classroom!
