My Students

Teaching first grade is my passion. Some of my first graders, unfortunately, come from challenging backgrounds with things no child should ever encounter. Many students receive free or reduced-price lunch. Some come to school in the dead of winter with no hats or mittens. No matter what their situation is at home, my first graders are still so eager and excited to learn new things. They all deserve the best education and that is my ultimate goal each and every day.

My Project

This fluency kit will help my students develop their number sense as they will learn how to subitize (recognize numbers without counting). Students will get a chance to use base ten blocks, tens frame dice, and Rekenreks to build their number sense. Students will engage in math talks to not only find solutions, but describe their reasoning behind them.

Math will be so much more than paper-pencil tasks.

Students learn in so many different ways and these materials will meet the needs of all my students.

I am so excited for my students to get their hands on these materials and to see how much fun math can be!
