My students need activity rugs. These activity rugs will make social studies and math activities fun and comfortable!
My kindergarten students are all Latino. Many of them are recently immigrated to the United States and others are the first in their family to be born here. The neighborhood where they live is a highly urban area of our city that is socioeconomically challenged. This is the first educational experience for many of my students. For many others it is their first organized experience, of any kind, outside their homes.
Our school is unique because it is a primary center.
All teachers, children, and staff work together to tackle the unique challenges these young students bring to their first years of formal education.
These two activity rugs will get my students excited about math and social studies. Funding this grant will provide my students with two classroom area rugs.
One rug is in the shape of a ten frame grid for math.
The other rug is a map of a typical town or city complete with roads and popular neighborhood destinations like the fire house and police station.
My students will use these rugs in various ways to make math and social studies concepts more concrete and comprehensible. Students will use the ten frame to act out addition and subtraction word problems, illustrate numbers 1-10, show all the different number combinations to ten, and to simply make counting more fun. Students will use the community map to compare and contrast locations of people and places (left, right, up, down, next to, north, south, east, west) and to identify important community service points.
These rugs will make math and social studies concrete, understandable, and entertaining!
