My kindergarten students are enthusiastic learners. They enjoy reading their picture books and counting their math collections, especially when the collections are over 100 objects. My students have South Los Angeles roots. Most students are eligible for the free lunch program. Most of my students' primary language is Spanish, and thus they are English language learners. My students' first formal educational experience is in my kindergarten class, and I embrace it.
My students' math literacy path is underway.
In my class, literacy takes many forms. My students are developing their digital and technological literacy, cultural and multicultural literacy, and, of course, reading, writing, math literacy. In my class, I integrate hands-on activities to engage and strengthen my students’ skills.
The bulletin board borders are to assist in creating an inviting environment for my students and their families. Along with the borders, the activities selected are to meet the needs of my students as they progress in their mathematical learning continuum. The containers selected are to keep my students' counting manipulatives organized and easier for them to select the appropriate leveled counters. The mathematic activities will enable my students to learn number identification, learn how to count, and develop addition/subtraction skills. Additionally, the dice will accompany high-interest math games to help in the hands-on learning experience.
Activity centers are cooperative learning at its best.
During math center time, not only do students learn their 123s, they build character traits. Those traits include building good citizenship, cooperation with peers, and responsibility for their own learning.
