I teach 19 hard working, silly, and amazing 2nd grade students in a small East Texas town. I have been teaching for 16 years and been a member of ATPE for all 16. I love what I do. My students love to work with hands-on activities, make creative art projects and play games. Theys do not respond as positively to worksheets or seat work activities as they do to physically manipulating the words, letters, or manipulatives. My students love to work in centers or sing songs to learn new concepts. I strive to make my classroom a fun, safe, and exciting learning environment.
Why Hands-on? Because my students should have an opportunity to explore math that will keep them engage and promote community as they work in small groups with their peers. Hands-on math offers a bridge between the daily rut of paper and pencil tasks and the multiple assessments done each year.
These math centers and manipulatives will give my students the opportunity to create pathways that will make it easier and quicker to retain important math skills.
This project, will reinforce essential math skills and promote a love for learning by using interactive math games and hands-on activities. I know that these materials will continue to peak my students curiosity about math and how it relates to the world around them.
