Math, Math, Math!

My students need Hands-On Ten Frames to help them add and subtract from 1-20. These manipulatives give new learners a concrete way to visualize numbers.

My Students

Every morning we start our day with thirty minutes of math intervention. Students that need extra math support need these manipulatives to help them visually see the number represented. Some students arrive to school without knowing numbers, and must be able to regroup before leaving first grade.

My school is comprised of 83% free and reduced lunch students, in a high poverty area.

My class is composed of 8 ELL (English Language Learners) who have come to America with their family in hopes of a better life. Learning English is hard for these children. If a child can visually see what I am talking about, then the subject can be learned so much easier. My students learn by doing, not by watching me, or by watching a video. A lack of parent involvement (we don't even have a PTA) has limited our classroom budget. The need to access common core state standard materials that are on their level, has never been so important.

My Project

My students need Hands-On Ten Frames. My students will be enthralled with these math manipulatives. Magnets are cool enough on their own, but now, put them into a ten frame, and they will be even more amazing! We use ten frames throughout the year. Students start by making "5" and build up to the number ten. Two colored counters are used to show all the different ways to make ten. Ten is the basic unit. A good grasp of how to make ten will help them in many other facets of first grade math. We use strategies such as, "Make a Ten" and "Ten and Some More." Students will make a ten to add and subtract easier. I see my students using these manipulatives daily in class.

Students lives will change for the better when they can easily count.

Imagine coming to a new country, not even knowing our English language. Students have so much to learn. Math is often an area that ELL students can excel in. It is often their favorite subject. I use ten frames now, and constantly print them and let students draw on them. Printing is limited at school. Using these magnetic frames will allow the same learning, but can be used for years to come.
