My students are creative, thoughtful and full of questions! They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions! They come to school each day ready to try new things and take brave chances in order to grow both personally and academically. Truly, they are my inspiration and the reason I do what I do. Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are!
In my first year of teaching math I have discovered that math needs to be very hands on to give them a more concrete understanding. We also are in need of some different activities that will lead to more critical thinking within the classroom. The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them something to get their hands on so that they can learn math skills in new and engaging way. Students will be able to simply focus on the academic material at hand, and not whether their materials are going to work or not. The activities that are included in my project will help to benefit them providing activities that are fun and engaging but at the same time challenging them to think critically.
I will use the Math Station Activities so that my students will be provided with more hands on learning that will challenge them at a higher level, while still being fun.
I have chosen the Upper Grade Math Manipulatives so that my students can get their hands on math and get a better understanding of the concepts being taught.
