Help me give my students the necessary math materials to have more hands-on experiences where they will be able to apply academic skills to real-life examples in small differentiated groups.
I am a second-grade immersion teacher in an IB school. My second graders learn mostly in Spanish while applying a global perspective to the entire curriculum. The goal of the program is for students to be able to fluently read and write in both English and Spanish while applying a global mindset to their everyday lives.
While being an amazing school and program, this school is a Title I school that has had budget cuts, but that does not keep these kids from being amazing.
I want to provide them with an amazing learning environment.
They will be using them for the whole group lesson and also for small group work. The centers will allow them to practice skills learned in class and will also help students that may need the remediation.
These math materials will provide real-life, hands-on examples for the students to manipulate in class.
It is imperative to give students the concrete representation in math so that they connect it to real life. That is not always possible but with this project, it would put them one step closer. This project will move us away from paper and pencil and closer to application of skills.
