We're Mad About Math

My students need math manipulatives and puzzles to make our math lessons interactive.

My Students

Do you remember having to learn math with only a pencil and paper? Many of our math lessons are taught this way. l would like to have a variety of math manipulative materials to make math fun and exciting.

The students in my class are in kindergarten in an urban setting.

Many of the children receive free lunch and money is tight for many of the parents. At this age, the children have a passion for learning and learn best through interaction. They enjoy learning math skills through games and a hands on approach.

My Project

We have an hour block for math and I would love to have the students be able to go to various math centers to learn the concepts. The materials I have requested are magnetic numbers to use for counting, stamps of numbers for the children to stamp and then trace on paper, a money puzzle and a toy cash register to use for currency lessons, small items for the children to count and use for solving addition and subtraction problems. The students would be able to explore, interact, and create with math materials. I hope to make math fun rather than a subject they dread or think is boring. I hope with the materials provided to make math fun and enjoyable. These materials would allow the students to practice counting, learn about money, create patterns and understand fact families.

These materials will allow my students to become engaged with math.

The manipulative materials will also aid with the implementation of the common core standards. I hope the children will see how important math is in our everyday life. I hope this hands on approach will inspire the children to see the importance of math in their lives.
