My Students

Do you remember playing with your friends when you were 8 & 9 years old? We'd play for hours pretending we were grown ups playing school and restaurant. My second and third graders love to explore and pretend they are out in the real world! They are a diverse bunch academically, and their desire to inquire and be hands on is thriving!

Boys and girls make the most progress learning when they see real world connections to what they are learning.

When given materials, their imaginations run wild. Using play money and clocks allows them to explore in an area they will use routinely in life. Their excitement bursts and their cooperative skills soar working to solve real world problems together.

My Project

In second and third grade a large focus in math is number sense, specifically using clocks and understanding and using coins and bills.

Having math manipulatives such as clocks, coins, bills and a cash register will help my students understand practical math they will use regularly in their daily lives.

Their excitement to learn builds when they get to show what they know with math materials.

My students are so excited to explore with hands on materials and understand better when they can manipulate materials and pretend with their friends. They also enjoy when I guide them to problem solve and show their understanding with the actual materials in their hands.
