Let’s Have Fun with Math!
Help me give my students a hand2mind VersaTiles Math Classroom Set to improve their math skills.
My first grade students attend an inner-city school in Southern California. The students live in a low socioeconomic community. Gangs, crime, and violence are commonplace. They receive free breakfast and lunch at school. They are excited to be in first grade and learn new things.
They have unlimited amounts of energy on a daily basis.
We enjoy putting that energy to good use in the form of P.E. I think Tennis Tuesday is their favorite activity. My class largely consists of English language learners. This is also true for our school. I would describe our school as a place for educating the whole child.
Our main priority is academics, of course, but in a fun and engaging way. We set high expectations and strive to meet the needs of all students. My school focuses on the 3Rs: Relationship, Rigor, and Relevance. We love our students and only want the best for them.
My students will benefit from receiving the hand2mind Math kit because it is aligned with the most recent standards in education. We currently have a math curriculum but it doesn’t measure up to the district’s standards so they have brought in a different program. The math materials that we use are by the hand2mind company.
First graders need hands on experience in order to best learn math concepts.
These materials will give them the opportunity to be engaged with the latest manipulatives. I am looking forward to seeing my students have fun while gaining a deeper understanding of the standards for mathematical practice.
