My students need bear, animal and bean counters, along with magnetic base ten blocks, and the HUE HD Pro USB camera for Windows and Mac so that students and I can project how we use the manipulatives to solve math problems.
My students live in a low-income neighborhood. They are caring and cooperative individuals. Although they have limited opportunities outside their immediate surroundings, they are full of wonder and curiosity. They love to learn through hands-on and real life experience.
Because my students don't have many opportunities to travel or visit outside their neighborhood, the activities and experiences they get at school are vital in building their background knowledge.
Background knowledge is key in their vocabulary development and understanding of key concepts.My students need to touch and feel real objects to get a firm understanding of the topic being taught.
I will be modeling the use of math manipulatives both to introduce math concepts and to solve problems. Students will use the bear, animal and bean counters to solve addition and subtraction problems individually and in small groups.
Students will use the Hue HD Camera to project their work to the whole class and demonstrate how they solve a math problem using manipulatives.
I will use the magnetic base ten blocks to demonstrates how to solve a variety of math problems, while students follow along with their own base ten blocks. Students will use the foam dice to play math games.
