My Students

My classroom of students are fascinated with math. Kindergarten is a time in which students gain a solid foundation in mathematical concepts. My students explore how math relates to their own lives and their community in daily lessons. Additionally, students incorporate learned math facts and cognition in planned STEM experiments throughout the year.

My students learn best using concrete, tangible objects with a clear learning purpose.

Funding is a limited resource, but this should not restrict my students' love of learning and academic potential in mathematics.

My Project

The requested project materials are essential for learning math concepts. The magnetic number bonds, ten frames and number lines will be solid visuals to build number sense. The visuals will also be frequently used as graphic organizers to compute math problems. The Montessori ten color bead frame and subitizing card set will further solidify the relationship between quantity and corresponding numerals. The Montessori number work booklet will support student memory of numerals and directionality in forming the numerals during written computations. Additionally, the sorting stones and sorting attribute set will be effective manipulative sets for my students as they classify, categorize and form patterns.

Help my young learners continue to love math by making math lessons memorable with materials that are accessible and engaging!

These materials will be utilized throughout the day during large group lessons, cooperative learning groups and individual work tasks. Thank you for your interest and support of our classroom STEM initiatives.
