My students need a variety of math games, like pop-and-add-to, Don't Break the Ice, and Math Dice Jr., that can be used with my common core curriculum.
Students learn best when they are actively engaged in their learning.
I am the lucky teacher of 24 kids in the morning and 24 kids in the afternoon.
That is 48 little minds that will be our future leaders. They are eager to learn new things in a variety of ways each and everyday and I am just as eager to teach them new concepts daily.
In common core it is important for the students to master the concepts for their grade level. They also need to be able to explain how they know what they know. The Pop and Add games, Math Dice Jr., Make 7, Flip It, and the file folder games will provide them with hands-on experiences throughout the school year. Many times when children are working together on games and activities such as these, it brings up lots of questions and discussions. This is exactly what needs to be going on in a common core environment. When kids are helping each other, teaching each other and questioning each other valuable learning is taking place.
These math activities will foster a fun and creative common core math environment in my classroom on a daily basis.
You will be providing my students with a wide variety of common core games and making a difference in the learning of many children.
