ClassBrain Staff. 2007, 1
grade. ClassBrain.com. 31 March2009, http://www.classbrain.comThis website illustrates hands on games, activities, and school time things thatstudents in the grade range of 1
grade should be able to do. The activities arenot too difficult for the grade levels. What I particularly like about this website is thateverything on the page is colorful, the print in large enough for young children to use,and it is entertaining. During leisure time a teacher or parent could safely allow their students to work on this site to help them see things, get ideas, learn what they arecapable of doing and working on things like the math later with the concepts they learnedon the website. There are games that are on here that also helps and encourages rotememorization for math, so it is important that students continue to practice.8.
Dr. Fletcher Kathleen B. Hands on Math: Learning Addition and Subtractionthrough Manipulative Activities31 March 2009,Tafford Publishinghttp://www.trafford.com/04-1933This website actually discusses ways to help students learn through the use of manipulatives. It has been noted that manipulatives are an easier method to helpingstudents learn math material better and more efficiently. The idea of the book used is based from a Chinese proverb that essentially states that by doing something youunderstand it while seeing helps you to remember but just listening allows you time toforget what is being taught. Teachers and students can both benefit from this book of hands on math activities. Dominoes, dice, tiles, bean bags and many other things can beused as visual aids to teach students about counting, adding, and subtracting with gamesto match.9. Teaching Today January 2009 The McGraw-Hill Companies. 31 March 2009,http://teachingtoday.glencoe.com/This website is a great resource for teachers who are looking for different andmore creative ways to begin units that are a bit difficult to understand. They offer videofootage, like we view in most of our classes, of a teacher teaching and their strategies thathave been successful. There are several how-to articles that are also available for teachersto view and learn from. Theses things tie into subject categories and discuss ways to work with difficult parents and the community in a math oriented way. McGraw-Hill alsooffers a separate website that has interactive books that students can work on with programs readily available.
