My five to six-year-old students are lively and charismatic. They brighten my day and I look forward to seeing them and seeing how much little and big growth they achieve each day. They’re all determined to succeed in all activities and they're always looking forward to another lesson and another center time in my class. My students are positively active, sociable and always eager to learn each day. They are starting to enjoy reading and finger word tracking (beginning reading strategy). They love Science experiments that we do in the classroom and they are so amused with how technology works and how much it plays a role in our learning each day.
We always do large group and individual Math activities in class. We do a lot of team friendly Math games that are age-appropriate and instill a lot of Math facts practice in Addition and Subtraction for my five-year-olds. In between all those tedious and at the same time, awesome tasks, I let my students have an ample amount of individual time to use their technology devices to interact with Math activities provided by the school and assess their individual Math skills with it. Each time a student completes a Math activity, it records it and helps them cultivate an independent type of learning and at the same time, help them to remind themselves never to give up and re-learn a Math step they might have missed. An opportunity to have a one to one student device ratio will help this happen. As of now, I have 20 tablets in school but I have 22 students. I want to give an opportunity for each child to do a Math task individually, independently and also be able to compare Math activities with their friends in a large group setting and unleash and create a friendly competitive atmosphere to be able to boost their self-confidence and their patience to finish all their math tasks.
