My scholars love to learn every day they come to school. They enjoy movement and hands-on activities. I work in a Title I school where 80% of scholars get free or reduced-price lunch. From the time they enter Kindergarten, to when they graduate, they are taught the importance of higher education and going to college.
Each classroom in the school is a University from somewhere in the US.
Scholars can already start to tell you how they are going to go to college one day, even if no one in their family has gone before.
My scholars are some of the most hilarious, forgiving, and inquisitive children I have been around. Every day is a new adventure with them, you never know what the day is going to be like.
My scholars learn best when they are able to interact with what they are learning. Manipulatives not only allow scholars to construct their own cognitive models for abstract mathematical ideas and processes, they also provide a common language with which to communicate these models to the teacher and other students.
My scholars need the fraction towers to have a pictoral model of what they are learning about.
The multiplication games will allow my scholars to get the practice at multiplication to apply it to other learning. 3-D shapes also allow my scholars to have an understanding of shapes because they can see them in 3-D instead of printed on a paper and 2-D.
Scholars who are presented with the opportunity to use manipulatives are able to better grasp new concepts and show their learning. All of my scholars deserve to have the best education possible, having the right resources helps scholars to get their.
