Tackling Tough Math Concepts Hands-On!

My students need manipulatives, such as clocks, rulers, and dry erase venn diagrams, to increase their mathematical thinking and learning.

My Students

I teach in a large urban school system that houses five different schools, including four PK-8 buildings and one high school. I teach in a fantastic PK-8 school filled with eager-to-learn students, innovative, hardworking staff members, and supportive administrative leaders. My school houses approximately 1,200 students and is the largest of the four PK-8 buildings in the city. Our offerings and programs provide our students with a plethora of learning opportunities, including a balanced literacy framework and a conceptually based math program.

Specifically, I teach in a third grade inclusion classroom and it is important for me to always make sure they are provided with every opportunity and every resource they need to be able to learn, work and grow as students.

My classroom is filled with 25 eager learners. Their abilities range from students with intellectual and specific learning disabilities to students with average to above average intelligences. Since our school district reports almost 98% of our students as economically disadvantaged, students lean on me and our school to provide them with what they need to learn.

My Project

Fractions, measurement, and multiplication, oh my! These math skills are quite difficult for my students to grasp and understand and being able to teach the concepts through hands-on learning makes it more enjoyable.

With the amount of differentiation needed for all students in the classroom to be successful, the use of math manipulatives is a vital part of this process.

The use of mini-clocks, large chart paper with grids, fraction pieces, rulers, number lines, and different writing materials will help students take their learning from concrete to abstract. My students will be able to access these materials when working independently or in cooperative learning groups.
