I teach first grade in an equity plus school. Since the majority of our children come from low-income families, they do not have a rich background of knowledge. Approximately 80% of our population receives free/reduced lunch. At least 20% are English as Second Language learners. Ninety-eight percent of the children in my classroom receive free lunch. Several of the children in my classroom entered first grade below grade level and are struggling academically. They have not yet grasped even the simple math concepts in the kindergarten and/or first grade curriculum. They are just now beginning to recognize geometric shapes, numbers to 30 (although our curriculum goes to 99), and the ability to count objects with one-to-one correspondence and match to the number. My grade level and I recently attended a math workshop that taught us new ways to help struggling learners. The activities/lessons will greatly enhance their learning in the areas of sorting, patterning, graphing, one-to-one correspondence, and shape and number recognition. Math concepts - such as addition, subtraction, and especially problem solving - are difficult for at-risk learners. We have been learning new ways to target these areas, too. I have been able to find several hands-on resources that will assist me in reaching the needs of my children. These resources will be used in centers, as well as in small group instruction. Hands-on learning is a vital part of the elementary curriculum. If we do not have the needed resources, our curriculum is not being taught at its fullest; and the children are the ones who suffer. Please help me to make learning fun and worthwhile for my students.
