My students love school! Many come from low-income households and have parents that must work outside the home.
My students are full of energy and excitement.
They come to school with an eagerness to learn. Because of their excitement and energy, I want to provide them with materials and opportunities that will help them thrive in the school environment.
I am always looking for new ways to engage my students, and help them be excited about learning new things in my classroom.
These items will be used to help build my students' fine motor skills, while also helping them develop their Math and Literacy skills.
The Letter and Number tiles will help them with letter recognition, and number recognition. The number tiles will also help them build their number sense which will help them later on when we begin to build their foundation for learning addition and subtraction. Some of my students are still struggling with letter recognition, so having the letter tiles to use on our light table will give me another way to introduce letter naming to them.
The magnetic balls and rods set will help build fine motor skills, as well as help students learn to work together and build positive social skills since I will use these in a center/small group setting. They will also learn some basics of how magnets work! The drill set will also help build fine motor skills, while also giving students practice in following directions. They will also get some real world application skills by using the toy drill, toy screws, and toy screwdriver to complete the pictures. The bear counters will be used during our large group math lessons to help learn skills such as sorting, patterning, addition and subtraction.
