Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Students

My sensational seconders are enthusiastic learners that love science, technology, engineering, art, and math. They are a diverse group of students with a range of abilities, backgrounds, cultures, and linguistic abilities. Their families applied to our STEM school because they support our school vision to prepare their children for college and 21st Century careers through innovation, inquiry, collaboration, and creative problem-solving. They love to share their ideas as their interests in the world around them grow with each day. Collaboration and creativity are part of our everyday learning goals. Small group learning helps us address the variety of individual needs these amazing 21st Century learners need and deserve.

My Project

Our base 10 number system requires young scholars to understand place value. The concept of place value can be tricky to teach and learn.

This essential mathematical concept can be greatly enhanced with the use of manipulatives called place value disks.

Place value disk are circular objects that represent 1, 10, 100, and 1,000. Composing and decomposing numbers using place value disks will help students make connects to our number system and language. It will deepened their understanding of addition and subtraction strategies, especially with regrouping. Strong math classrooms encourage the use of hands-on manipulatives to reinforce students' mathematical learning.
