We love to learn! My first graders are working hard every day, and so am I! These six and seven year olds are learning to read, have become writers and have made big gains in math. We are busy all day long, and there's still much to do.
My students are in first grade, and love coming to school to learn!
They come from a wide variety of living situations. Some come from two parent homes, some from single parents, and some with multiple generations, or multiple families living in one apartment. Some of my students speak English fluently, and some do not. Some of my students come from families who support public education and encourage their students to do their best while at school. While at school, I hold high expectations for each student in their behavior and their academics, no matter their home life. We learn together, we work through problems together, and we celebrate successes together. Helping my students learn the skills of reading and math will help them for their entire lives.
My students love Daily 3! Daily 3 rotations include Math Writing, Math by Myself, and Math with Someone. During Math with Someone, students have the opportunity to play math games that review the skills that have been previously taught and they have practiced at Math by Myself, and Math Writing. These skills include addition, subtraction, and place value, and number sense. As the teacher, it my job to plan games and activities that are meaningful and interesting to the students.
These games are already created which gives me more time to focus on the needs of my students, and to plan other activities.
My students need 4 Way Countdown, Sum Swamp, and I Sea 10! to help them practice basic math facts. The games will hold their attention, and add fun to their daily routine. The sheet protectors are used in Math Writing on a daily basis. I print off practice sheets and the students write on the protectors with dry erase markers. I add new practice pages to their math binders almost every day. Daily 3 has helped my students LOVE math!
