My Students

I have not met my students yet this year! However, I teach first grade dual language and 80% of my day is teaching in Spanish. This year I want to start out with a strong focus on number sense. I will have a broad range of abilities, no doubt, but number sense is easily differentiated with the right materials.

This summer I have been researching ways to improve my teaching of number sense.

I read the book Number Sense Routines by Jessica Shumway. She presented some specific new strategies that I would like to implement as well as some old ones that I would like to tweak to better meet the needs of my students. I would like to purchase "dot cards", "ten frame cards", and a Rekenrek. These materials focus on base five and ten models to help build as strong number sense for my young learners. I'm excited to get started this year!

My Project

First graders need continual and varied opportunities to build number sense. Hands-on materials coupled with kinesthetic activities/daily routines really make a difference. The ETA Hand2Mind Rekenrek class set will allow me to teach whole class or small group. The Learning Advantage dot and ten frame card set and the Junior Learning 50 Ten Frame Activities can be used in direct teaching lessons as well as independent practice.

The more fluent and comfortable my students can be with sets of 5 and 10, the stronger mathematicians they will be across the board!

These activities can be modified to meet the needs of all levels of students, but especially those students struggling with understanding number values. These materials will help me start off the 2018-2019 school year STRONG!
