KEVA This!!

My students need these additional KEVA Wooden planks to add to our current set. KEVA planks are small rectangular shaped wooden blocks use to build structures so students will investigate how to construct objects.

My Students

I teach third grade math in one of the best rural schools in Oklahoma! We are a Title I school with the majority of our students receiving free lunches.

My students are a diverse group with varied levels of learning.

Our classroom is a space where we enjoy coming to learn. My students love to learn in non-traditional ways, through technology, room transformations, integrating arts into our lessons, and project-based learning.

My students have huge hearts and are extremely curious about their learning. They have creative, compassionate, and amazing attitudes. They are truly wonderful children. My school is wonderfully supportive of the active hands-on learning that we do in our classroom. I could not ask for a better environment for these students. We are truly a community!

My Project

Research has proven that the use of hands-on manipulatives can increase students' attentiveness and engagement. Also, children who have the opportunity to play with blocks tend to excel in the subjects of mathematics and science. Allowing my students to physically handle the KEVA planks/blocks can build a fundamental understanding of quantities, balance, stability, geometry, etc.

I will implement KEVA planks/blocks into my classroom activities, as well as our current STEM after school program to spark my students understanding in the above areas.

Each KEVA set will provide additional planks to our current sets. The KEVA sets we have now do not include enough planks for our groups to build endlessly. I currently have task cards to push my students to think outside the box. The task cards become more challenging, so my students will gain patience, confidence, and communication skills through their trial and error.
