My students are 2nd graders that are happy, energetic little boys and girls that are excited about learning. They work hard, try their best and are very enthusiastic about learning. These children want to do well in school, but they all have mathematical concepts that they struggle with. They come from very diverse backgrounds and cultures. Some of my students are ELL and some have learning disabilities that make it harder to learn. They also come in with different levels of support from home.
My second grade students need these math materials to use during our intervention math time. While I am working with small groups of children, my students will be working at their individual levels practicing specific concepts they need to help their little minds grow mathmatically.
One of the activities that I am requesting include math folder games for practicing time, money and basic facts.
These games allow kids to grab a folder and have all the materials to play the game right there. I am also requesting board games (addition and subtraction tower of math) that allow children to practice their basic facts so needed to be successful in the second grade.
My students need games and activities that are engaging and fun, that will hold their attention while they are working independently. These math materials will give my students a chance to practice addition, subtraction, multiplication, money, time and place value in more engaging ways. Children need several times to practice new math concepts before they become successful.
