My Students

My first grade students come to school ready to learn, explore, and collaborate with each other! We emphasize kindness and positive actions toward one another at our school, which helps maintain a focus in our classroom on learning and building a love for lifelong learning. My students are eager to learn and come to school excited to explore new things.

My students love to explore, collaborate, and challenge each other in math centers and math instruction.

I am looking to provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences. Thank you for considering my project and helping my students have the best education they deserve!

My Project

Walt Disney said, "if you can visualize it, if you can dream it, there's some way to do it." Making learning fun is my goal each day. We often use our desks as whiteboards while doing math talks and math instruction to make learning fun and keep students engaged. Giving students opportunities to show what they know and practice new skills being taught is essential to their learning, but making sure it captures the engagement of all can be difficult.

My students can use the iPad mini with the Osmo Genius Kit to practice number sense and problem solving skills while collaborating with each other.

We do math talks and math centers everyday in our classroom. Our math talks focus on building number sense and decomposing numbers. Five of our six math centers are independent centers while I reteach and give support to other children. Using technology as an interactive, hands-on activity during math centers and math instruction will help my students learn the foundational skills in math being taught in first grade.
