Math Talks for Firsties!

My students need individual Rekenreks to assist with Math Talks, as our district moves to the Common Core math curriculum.

My Students

My students are eager to learn, and love hands-on math activities! I love giving them a chance to think outside the box.

My students are active, eager first graders.

I am always looking for ways to move them into active participation with our lessons, where they can be the leaders and thinkers and I can be the facilitator. It is exciting to watch the light bulbs spark when they have an "aha" moment! It is even better when they flick the switch themselves!

My Project

As we move into Common Core, away from pencil and paper tasks which do not always facilitate deeper thinking, the need for hands-on manipulatives is greater than ever. Using the Rekenreks to develop a deeper number sense, and allowing the use of the creativity that is buried in each child, will be an exciting way for my students to find a love of math. I am excited for them to see that there is more than one way to solve a problem, and that we can respect different approaches and ways of thinking.

We have only been actively bringing Common Core math into our classrooms just this year, and the times when we bring out the manipulatives and let the children lead the thinking have, hands down, been the most exciting and awesome moments.

Kids need hands-on learning!
