Help me give my students some wonderful hands-on tools with ETA Daily Math Fluency Kits. This kit will provide my students hands-on tools to create mathematical relationships and to make sense of numbers and numerical concepts .
Math can be a tricky thing for many kids. Our school in Central Illinois just created a math interventionist position that will allow me to help those struggling with math. The K-3 students I will see want to be successful in math and need that extra boost to help them with that. I would love to show many different stratgies to solve math problems and build their number sense.
Without number sense, many kids will continue to struggle with math and be frustrated.
Starting the struggling learners with the basics about number sense, will help them grow and become lovers of math.
I look forward to creating a Number Sense environment an immerse these eager learners in all the basics of number sense through hands-on manipulatives and activities.
Hands on tools with math are so important for learners that need the visual representation. With a Hand2Mind Daily Math Fluency Kit, students will be able to start making sense of numbers with tools like a Rekenrek and Number Strings.
With these tools, students will begin to "catch on" to number sense.
Students will work on subitizing, counting on and counting back, along with using strategies of five and ten with these hands-on tools.
Once students immerse themselves in number sense, as math progresses and gets more challenging, they will apply the skills they acquired dealing with number sense to become successful mathematicians.
