My Students

In my classroom, my students love to learn through exploration and the use of hands-on materials for investigation. The use of concrete tools have a lasting impression on the young minds of students.

The tools help create mathematicians, scientists, artists, and help them grow while they learn.

Investigation through the use of hands-on tools to promote learning with exploration is something my students look forward to. Kindergarten students love to be engaged and feel as if they are part of the activity. To keep a young child focused, it is a must that they enjoy what they are doing. Manipulatives are the greatest tool in learning for a new experience.

My Project

I have chosen math manipulative's that I know my kindergarten students will need and use on a regular basis. The connecting rods could be used in both a whole group or small group setting—to teach students methods of counting, making 10, grouping, and counting by 10.

They will benefit them in a multitude of ways by becoming an asset to their learning.

The sorting bears will be used for a variety of activities from sorting by size, color, to teaching to count.

I really want to incorporate a listening station into the early childhood classroom. A CD player would be an awesome way for this to take place, and with extra ports for headphones, more than one student at a time could benefit from the listening center. From listening to stories, with a follow-up activity for retell and comprehension to CDs over letter sounds. The children would enjoy and greatly learn from this.

The stools would stay located at a small group table in my room. This use of flexible seating will help with the fidgety friends focusing and easily store for extra room in the classroom.
