Learning Through Hands On: Help Multiply Our Math Skills

My students need number building cards, counting match ups and number practice books to strengthen their math skills.

My Students

Imagine being in first grade and struggling with recognizing and writing your numbers to 30 let alone the standard of having to recognize and write to 120 by the end of first grade. My students are lacking basic math skills that will lead to higher thinking math skills like addition and subtraction.

My students come to our school because they live in the immediate neighborhood.

Many of them walk or take the bus to get to school every day. Most of them come from a low income family with only one parent who is struggling to hold the family together. They suffer from low academics and many suffer from ADHD. They come to learn but some days it is a struggle to keep them on task. I have to make sure that we are always on the move and we have a lot of hands on activities and movements planned for the day.

My Project

Picture a class of students sitting at their desk simply looking out into space, day dreaming and not completing their work. Add on the vision of them lacking social skills and arguing with each other. Now, picture that same group of students collaborating and completing assignments with hands on materials. My students would use these number matching puzzles, number writing boards, play-doh building numbers, and number and counting plates to strengthen their skills in math. They will strengthen and build math scores while helping to boost confidence. All of these materials will impact my students in the area of math. I would use these materials in small, collaborate groups to strengthen skills in my below grade level students that continue to struggle. They can work together and help each other while having fun.

These materials will allow my students to build concrete, essential skills that they need to have to achieve basic math.

The materials are all hands on and will allow the learners another revenue or learning. They will also promote collaboration and team building skills.
