Our youngest learners are eager to develop their number sense. They love to study models and use manipulatives to understand math concepts. They respond especially well to math games. Our students love to touch, feel, move and build as they solve a math problem. They also need to feel successful and engaged as they work their way through theses skills.
Math games provide a fun and engaging way for our students to work with numbers.
Our school is fortunate to have a math coach who comes into the classrooms and leads math games and other activities. The students love seeing math in a game and seeing how it can be used in their real lives. Our kindergarten and first grade teachers have created many math games to help develop numerical literacy skills. We are hoping to increase our math game libraries and encourage independent learning with these Tiny Polka Dot games.
Tiny Polka Dot has various levels of play for students of all abilities. The game helps to develop counting skills and continues through to addition and subtraction skills. Our students respond best to hands-on and interactive experiences, especially in math! Students will be excited as they progress through the levels of the game and master critical math skills.
The sooner we can help students solidify their number sense and fact fluency, the stronger they will be as they move to grade two and beyond.
This game will be especially helpful to our English language learners and students with unique learning needs. We know that they will absolutely love learning math by playing Tiny Polka Dot, and we appreciate your support in helping our mini-mathematicians grow!
