My Students

My students are amazing, little people with great questions, talents, and varying abilities. They are wiggly, silly, love coming to school, and love learning! They love being able to move while they're learning and exploring new and different materials.

One of my favorite things about our classroom is the community that we have built.

They love working together and celebrating each others success. We have so many different types of learners with various abilities. They engage in their learning in a way that fosters growth and love. I love being their teacher and sharing in their learning!

My Project

This project allows me to provide hands-on materials for my students in small groups, whole group, and independently. Many of the materials have a way for the students to check themselves and build their fact fluency. They can work independently and in partners. These materials can be used as a tool to check students understanding and can also be used for practice after they have completed the task. So many of these materials are hands-on and allow students to manipulate numbers to help increase their overall number sense. Making math magical and improving math skills is so important for first grade.
