My students need literacy, math and free expresive play materials to further their hands on learning. Being so young they need to use materials that are manitpulative and colorful to retain the information and knowledge better.
As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to keep things simple and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
My students are creative, clever and very spontaneous.
They like to move, they love to read and love lots of positive attention. Many of them are being raised in single parent households and receive a free lunch based on their socioeconomic status. These things may prevent them from getting ahead early in life and may not provide them with the life experiences many of us see as "typical". From the minute they walk in the door of my classroom I focus on their potential and growth while they are with me. I may not be able to control their home lives, however, I can certainly control their experience during the school day. By doing this in a creative and positive way, I am hopeful to inspire even our earliest learners to continue on a path of academic excellence.
Having tangible, colorful and resuable center manipulatives helps them absorb and gain new knowledge from their ABC's to their 123's and so much more. These new literacy and math manipulatives will not only help them learn but also work collaboratively with each other. Working collaboratively will help their future academic skills flurish and accomplish group work in school and play areas throughout the year.
The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them options during literacy and math learning center times to learn and grow.
I have seen how choice can positively affect my students work and demeanor and hope that the additional options will help us grow even more!
