My students need hands-on materials for math and science. My students learn math and science in Spanish, so I am also responsible for bridging the language and extending in English. These tools will help it stick!
My students attend a dual language and fine arts public school. They were accepted into the program from all over the district and have very diverse backgrounds. The only thing needed was a willingness to try something new.
My students try their best in both languages- English and Spanish.
They are all hard workers and love reading. They love hearing my read-alouds and learning about the world. So far, they have enjoyed some of the fine arts integration I have tried to include in my classroom.
At my school, students in K-3 learn math and science in Spanish. As the English teacher, I am responsible for making sure that students can transfer this learning to English and extend their learning in these subjects in English. This will include reading and writing about these math and science concepts, as well as doing experiments with counters, ten frames, clocks, and magnets.
It will be important for my students to get their hands on cars, ramps, and toys to experiment with motion.
They will get to explore with these hands-on tools and make learning fun. These concrete materials will help make the learning stick! For example, some of the hands-on tools that I am asking for include a balance, a magnet kit, clocks you can write on and wipe off, and ten frames to understand composing and decomposing numbers. The products I have chosen will help students deepen their understanding of these math and science concepts.
