My first graders are amazing. My students come to class every day ready to tackle the given learning adventure. They want to be better readers, writers, scientists and mathematicians, to make their futures and our world brighter.
In my class, we are superheroes in training and work each day in Superhero mode.
My students come from a low income area where many of them go without food, clean clothes, and the essentials on a daily basis. Our school is Title I where all of our students receive free breakfast and lunch.
One of the most important things that a students can learn is Number Sense. When a student has a strong understanding of numbers and their relationship to each other and the world, they can make better choices for themselves and their families.
When my students have a strong understanding of numbers, they can change their life trajectory.
The use of the ETA Hand2Mind Daily Math Fluency Kit, will give me a tool to help my students gain a strong sense of numbers, counting, and addition strategies that they can take with them throughout their lives and share with their families.
