Help me give my students games with self-checking magnetic boards so that they can learn more independently!
My school's student population is primarily Hispanic, and 86% of the students receive free/reduced meals. It is a neighborhood school, so naturally, many of the students live in apartments on the bordering streets.
Over the summer I trained in a new learning system called Daily 3 and Daily 5, and my new first graders love it!
This is how it works: I teach my students a mini-lesson, and then my students choose an independent activity to work on for 10-15 minutes. Daily 3 is the choice time for math, and Daily 5 is the choice time for ELA. In particular, my students really enjoy the jobs that they can do with partners and the jobs that include hands-on materials.
My students have amazed me with how quickly they have taken to Daily 3 and Daily 5. They have learned a lot of responsibility and independence, and they show a lot of engagement during their daily choice times. It's my first year doing this, so the kids and I are learning together, and I'm excited to see how the rest of the year goes.
When my students choose their own jobs during our Daily 3 and Daily 5 time, they tend to choose the activities that are hands-on, and it's an added bonus that these math and language games I found from Lakeshore are the self-checking type. My students can work more independently (checking and correcting their own answers) while I focus on teaching a small group or work with those who need more support.
I already have two of these games for a different skill, and when I showed my students the self-checking function (where the star magnets on wrong answers drop off, and the star magnets on correct answers stay stuck), I heard gasps of "It's magic!" I hope to hear more cries of amazement and joy from my students, and I would love to have your help.
