Make Learning Meaningful

In math we are using math manipulatives and conducting number talks. The students are  gaining  a deeper understanding of numbers and place value. We are focusing more on a student’s process  to solve a problem rather than  solely focusing on the answer. This  helps students gain confidence and feel more comfortable with sharing their thoughts about other students’ ideas and to share  their own ideas. By allowing students to share different ways to solve problems, students understand  that we all learn in different ways. This has been a professionally  amazing experience, and has taught me the importance of student-led discussions. It is very exhilarating to observe students become excited to learn  and be highly engaged in our math discussions!
