  • My Class Needs math-based materials to become successful critical thinkers

    Launched September 18th, 2017 Project Deadline January 10th, 2018
    Classroom Size 22 Students School Size 393 Students

    My Students

    I teach Grades 2 & 3 and the students are excited to discover, explore and learn the world around them. To provide these opportunities it is essential to have hands-on critical thinking materials and manipulatives to engage students in active learning. It is my hope that having these resources will encourage purposeful, academic and interactive play through discovery and develop oral language at the same time. I can't wait to be amazed by their creative ideas, discussions and discoveries!

    How will this project impact them?

    Students will be able to learn through exploration and this will help solidify learning. Kids learn better when using manipulatives. Engaging students to collaborate, discuss and create will help promote how to think critically and logically. Building these skills is essential at the primary level in order to meet the challenges that lie ahead in future years through innovation and communication. Collaboration through discovery will also help students formulate ideas and extend learning with these hands-on materials with each other.
