The objective of this grant is to obtain engineering, math, handwriting, and Spanish language materials that students can use upon entering the classroom in the morning to interact, create, problem solve, and learn with their peers. The materials require students to actively work together in small groups and will immediately support connection with each other, the teacher, and learning. The engineering materials will require students to design, test, and build together. The math materials will help support the first grade CCSS math standards with group games and hands-on activities. The handwriting activities will include materials that support fine motor development, which is necessary for first grade learning. This is a critical area of development currently, in an era when interaction with tablets and phones has supplanted many of the traditional childhood fine-motor activities of the past. The Spanish language activities will provide additional phonics and academic vocabulary support, necessary for reading and writing development. Therefore, the purpose of these developmentally appropriate morning activity tubs is two-fold: 1) All of the activities will align with our first grade Spanish language arts, math or science engineering standards and 2) they will provide an opportunity for students to connect with each other and their teacher in a creative and engaging way to help meet their social-emotional needs.
