Making Math Meaningful... and Comfortable

My students need bean bags to provide a space that is inviting and comfortable to practice reading as well as manipulatives that will aid in their understanding of early math concepts.

My Students

My students are awesome to say the least. Many of them come from homes that are not able to give them experiences beyond their everyday needs. In spite of this, my students are full of life and energy and I want to give them opportunities to learn as much as they can but also to have fun while doing it.

I love watching their eyes beam and their minds turn as they learn to read in our first grade classroom.

My classroom is where many of my students will learn how to read for the first time. They enjoy everything from puzzles and little readers to chapter books and articles.

Thinking back on my life in first grade I can remember how every little thing was new and exciting. That is the same emotion I want to stir up in my kids; excitement in learning.I love these kids and if I could I would give them the world!

My Project

Adding two bean bag chairs to my classroom will provide a space for students to go to read and truly engage themselves in their learning.

These bean bags will engage students and encourage them to see reading and working as an exciting option rather than a mundane assignment at their desk.

The math manipulatives will allow students to be hands-on as their learn basic math principles such as place value. The place value blocks as well as the ten frames serve as a welcomed alternative to simply sitting and listening, but rather working and learning. I would even love to mix these purchases and utilize the bean bags as a flexible seating option not only during reading but also during math as well!
