My students need hands on materials like fractions strips and pattern blocks to help them grasp different math concepts. I also have selected math games to help get them excited and engaged in their learning.
I have 23 fantastic third graders that work so hard for me each day. They are kind, friendly, and loving. They all come from different home lives and different economic status. I have quite a few that come from low income homes.
My third graders are inspiring and hard working.
It is my pleasure to be their teacher and I love getting to know each one of them. They all have different interests, strengths, and weaknesses. They get along amazingly well and are super supportive of one and another.
I want my students to be able to actively engage and be excited about learning mathematics. Math can be exciting and engaging; I want to make sure I have the materials to do this in my classroom.
I have selected materials that I think will help deepen my students' understanding of difficult third grade math concepts.
I want to make sure that my students truly understand the different math concepts they are learning and are able to have fun while doing it. The fraction strips will help them be able to see what each fraction represents as well as compare different fractions. I will be able to extend their learning with the fraction multipliers and help them learn how to simplify fractions. These help give them a visual of each fraction and how the fractions are equivalent to one another.
The math card game, Speed, helps them to become more fluent with their multiplication facts by using pictures to represent groups of objects as well as be able to count in order.
Super Genuis is a math card game that helps them that helps them recognize patterns while keeping the students engaged in their learning.
The pattern blocks are a great tool to use for learning about geometry, area, perimeter, and fractions. They offer the students a chance to manipulate and create with actual objects.
The card game Flip it offers a visual representation to help the students understand the concept of multiplication.
