Help me give my students the context and tools they need to understand the world around them as confident mathematicians.
Each of my students brings new ideas and creativity into our classroom. Each child learns in their unique, individual way. Since I have such a diverse group of students, I need a variety of tools to help each student succeed in all areas including mathematics.
Help my students make concrete, relatable, and real-world connections in mathematics.
Students connect to literature, especially when the literature has a storyline and plot that is relatable to their age. Math literature helps kids connect otherwise abstract concepts to situations they can understand. All of the math literature I have chosen for this project relates to standards, but also have plots that are relatable to first graders.
The sky is the limit for our first graders when they have context for the learning. When students can make sense of the world around them, they are more likely to have a deepened understanding of the subject they are being taught. The specific math literature we have chosen as a grade level will teach content standards along with storyline plots that can be used as a jumping block for big idea projects and math-rich lessons.
Help our students make concrete and lasting mathematic connections to the world around them.
We want to help our students understand the world of mathematics as a way to help them navigate their own environment. When math skills are taught in isolation without big ideas, conversations, and a relatable place to refer back to- math concepts can come and go. In order to make lasting connections we want to build projects, big ideas, and content that is made relatable to children's lives through the impact of great literature.
