Mrs. Famigletti from Bristol CT is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need concrete materials to manipulate and practice breaking apart numbers to build math fluency and flexibility adding and subtracting numbers to 20 and they need to apply these strategies adding and subtracting to 100.
My students absolutely love coming to school each and every day ready to explore, question, and learn. There is a great sense of community and trust among them as they are able to apply and share their thinking and knowledge with each other without worry or fear.
While their learning styles may differ, all students enjoy learning in a small group setting where they can openly and safely share their thinking with each other.
One of their favorite parts of the day is Math Workshop. This is an exciting content area that simultaneously incorporates small group guided instruction with independent practice and partner activities. These kiddos work and move around the room with fervor and enthusiasm as they increase math experiences that help establish and build number sense and flexibility. I would like to provide them with all the tools necessary to reach every learner in my classroom so that he or she will develop the necessary foundation in which all other math will build upon.
The two-row rekenreks will allow students to learn new strategies and practice old strategies for addition and subtraction math facts to 20. This will increase their fact recall / fluency which is so important to all future math concepts. The ten-row rekenrek will help them connect these strategies to numbers 100 and greater and lead to improved automaticity with two- and 3-digit addition and subtraction.
Rekenreks will move students from being concrete thinkers into representational and abstract thinkers.
Many students resort to finger counting simply because they lack the experiences that provide them number sense.
The products that I have selected will help my students by giving them visual and concrete materials to practice various strategies and become flexible thinkers. They will be used in whole group, small group and by individual students. They will allow each child become a teacher and share his/her own strategy with peers.
I am eager to use these with my students and just as excited to see how my little ones explain their thinking while using the rekenreks. I thank you in advance!
