My Students

For the 2019-2020 school year, I have 21 students in my classroom who come to school everyday ready to soak up knowledge like a sponge. Between teacher led groups, independent work stations, and whole group carpet time, my students are introduced to a variety of social and academic skills with opportunities to share their recently acquired skills with their classmates.

My goal for my students is to be lifelong learners.

I have had the opportunity to work in a Title I school where I am working with students and parents from different backgrounds. Over the course of the year, my students not only become classmates but a family. One challenge I face as a teacher is not having a variety of resources to promote independence and the academic success of my students.

My Project

Rekenreks will be used in my kindergarten classroom to give my students a concrete hands-on experience to promote number fluency. Not only do students need multiple hands on experiences to build fluency, but also to explain their thinking and build connections between numbers and problems.

Rekenreks can be used many ways in the classroom to help students subitize, compose and decompose numbers, reach counting milestones, and to teach part-part-whole.

Rekenreks can be introduced whole group for number talks but also used in a small group setting to give students the chance to focus on a specific skill using the rekenreks. Once students have hands on experience working with numbers, they can then apply these skills to any number and allows students to make mental images of numbers.
