Hands-On Fun

My students need math and reading center materials to help them practice skills we have learned in class.

My Students

Every child deserves to have opportunities to be successful in school. Reaching the needs of each individual child can be challenging. My students need ways to practice the specific skills that they are working on every day.

My students are curious and enthusiastic seven and eight year olds.

They love to learn and enjoy working in small groups and with partners. They like to help each other understand concepts and enjoy coming up with new or different solutions to problems. They are very motivated to learn. Our school is lucky to have great support from parents and the community and we work hard to build our school family every day. My students also have a wide range of skill levels. I want to support the ones who are struggling as well as challenge the ones who have mastered the basics. They also enjoy being independent and solving problems. In order for me to work in small groups with those who need extra help the rest of the class needs to be engaged in meaningful work that is just right for each child.

My Project

At the beginning of the year I came across a set of VersaTiles. I thought they looked interesting (and they were being given away free) so I brought them into the classroom. My students were immediately intrigued! We have a set of the math books but the books are actually for fourth grade. Even still, there were several activities they were able to complete. The VersaTiles combine practice sheets with a case of numbered tiles. As the children solve the problems, they match the tile with an answer key at the bottom of the page. When they are finished with the problems, they close the case, flip it over and check their work by seeing if the pattern on the back of the tiles matches the one in the book. They rush to use these materials whenever they get the chance. I want to give them more books to use with the tiles that are actually on their level in math as well as the ability to practice their reading skills as well.

I am asking for VersaTiles practice books for math and reading.

These materials have already been a success in my classroom. Providing them more opportunities to work on exactly the skills they need will build not only their knowledge but their confidence as well. The self checking feature allows them to work together to figure out difficult problems which also builds their communication skills. These materials will help my students to be successful in many ways!
