My students need a math manipulative storage organizer shelf, rekenrek sets, and student number lines.
My Kindergarten students are part of a wonderful Spanish Immersion program. Our school offers 90% Spanish and 10% English starting in Kindergarten. They are life long learners in a bilingual community. My students are full of excitement, confidence, and are hard workers. They are curious learners, ready to collaborate, and problem solve. Each of my students are unique and learn in their own way. I want my students to succeed in the classroom and build the foundation they need to be successful in the school years to come.
This school year I will teach Kinder math using a different approach. CGI (Cognitively Guided Instruction) is an approach to teaching mathematics rather than a curriculum program. It is the practice of listening to children's mathematical thinking and using it as a basis for instruction.
"Don't underestimate a child's ability to do math." Through CGI , various physical materials are available to children to assist them in problem solving.
I have begun to re-organize my classroom for this shift in teaching math. The organizer shelf will help my students visually see their choices in manipulatives. I also plan to sort the manipulatives by quantity amounts in color coded small containers that I have bought. Students will be able to select from the color coded bins that come with the organizer shelf. The manipulatives I have listed in my wish list will be an excellent addition to support my students in Math. I would love a Rekenrek set to help my students' development in number sense to use during CGI lessons. This tool is made up of rows of ten plastic beads each. It builds an understanding of the five and ten structure of numbers. My students would also benefit from individual number lines. Number lines promote good mental arithmetic strategies. Students would also be able to use this as a tool during CGI lessons.
