Meaningful Math Materials for Mini Mathematicians

My students need collections of pretend candy, fish, insects, beans, and buttons to sort and count using hundreds charts, number lines, tens frames, and grouping containers.

My Students

It is my honor and privilege to be able to teach a group of 14 highly motivated, compassionate, and intelligent first grade dual language students in Illinois. My students are very observant and they enjoy interacting with the world around them in not one, but two languages. I am always trying to get my students up and moving around, singing, or exploring in small groups to make learning hands-on and engaging.

They learn best when they are having fun, interacting with other students, and working with hands-on materials.

I work very hard every day to provide my students with meaningful experiences to make learning exciting.

My Project

The young mathematicians in my classroom need hands-on experiences learning how to count groups of objects, or collections. Counting collections is a structured opportunity for my students to discover how to count by grouping objects. With the materials requested in this project my students will have the opportunity to count and group objects that I can connect to real life situations, such as pretend candy, fish, insects, and beans.

These materials will allow me to make math more meaningful for them and give them a real world connection to what we are learning.

These materials will also give my students the flexibility to group and count their objects in different ways that make sense to them, such as with a hundreds chart, with tens frames, with a number line, or with individual cup to make groups of two, five, or ten. This will allow me to differentiate my math instruction to meet the varying needs of my students. After my students count their collections and solve the real world application problems, they will record their thinking and share their learning experiences during our daily math talk time. Having a strong number sense and problem solving skills in first grade will set up students up for future success in math!
