I teach first grade in a Title 1 school. Approximately 81 percent of our students are on free or reduced lunch. One of the key areas that we work on in first grade math is problem solving. This is one of the areas that the children will need to be able to do on their EOG's in third grade. I have found that my children learn better when you provide them with hands on activities and manipulatives. I would like to purchase the Simple Story Problems Boxes. These boxes work on objectives such as counting and comparing, addition, subtraction and mixed operations. These boxes include a flip chart with various story problems, 4 of each activity and manipulatives to complete the problems.
