Math Games For Common Core Standards
My students need 3 sets of math games/learning centers and manipulatives that target the common core state standards in a fun and engaging way.
Do you remember when you were young and all you wanted to do was play a game and do stuff with your friends? Well, games make learning more fun than traditional paper and pencil activities. Games are hands on and allow students to work with peers. Games are awesome!
My students are in special education and have a variety of disabilities.
They are more than two years behind academically. They require hands-on materials to master their IEP goals in math. My students have big dreams and deserve the best educational materials possible to achieve their goals.
I am a special education resource teacher who teaches Kindergarten, first, and second grade students at a Title I school in the state of Alaska. Ninety-five percent of my students come from poverty stricken families. All of the students receive free lunch because of their low income status.
The students come from a variety of ethnic backgrounds; over fifty percent of the students are bilingual. The largest portion of bilingual students are Hmong. All of my students are special education. They have a variety of disabilities from Autism, Specific Learning Disability, Other Health Impaired, and Emotional Disturbance.
My students are learning the basic math skills to be successful in math. All of these math games and manipulatives address the common core state standards which all special education students have a right to be exposed to. All these math materials address my students IEP goals.
Math is an important skill for students to learn. They will use math for various reasons in their every day life when they grow up and become adults. They will need these skills if they want to be independent adults.
The students will play the math games with a peer to learn these important math skills in a fun and engaging activity. Students will learn the math skills and how to interact with peers. They will need both of these skills in the work environment.
Manipulatives and games make learning fun and easy to do.
They provide intrigue through hands on learning in the classroom. Students get to work with peers and use their hands. Students get to learn and work on social skills. Manipulatives make learning easier because students can see a picture. Students deserve the best opportunity to learn!
