Hi, everyone! It's Laura from Differentiation Station Creations. I am so excited to be a part of The Primary Pack! This is an extraordinary chance to collaborate with an extremely talented group of teachers.
I am a teacher with a background in special education. I have a Masters of Arts in Teaching with a focus in special education. I am certified in early childhood education, special education, and elementary education. I have taught in a variety of settings, including a special education center, inclusion classrooms in elementary school, and as a resource room teacher in an elementary school.
My role in education now is as a "mommy teacher", collaborative teacher, blogger, and creator. I have been fortunate enough to be able to be a stay-at-home mom with my kids and keep my head and heart in teaching. My kids have had amazing teachers, who are willing to collaborate with me. Since I entered the world of blogging, I am now able to share my ideas with you!
"Greater Gator" is my DIY math manipulative for you! I needed a cheap and easy math manipulative to help a student really grasp the concept of greater and less than. Many of the students, that I work with, learn best with concrete, hands-on activities. I am a great believer in manipulatives and FUN!
"Greater Gator" is made out of 2 cloth dusters from the dollar store.
You can head over to my blog to get the step-by-step directions in pictures and pick up FREE songs and chants to use with Greater Gator!
Get some other ideas on how to use Greater Gator, too!
Thanks for checking out "Greater Gator" with me! I hope you found some fun ideas for your students. Don't forget to come back tomorrow for more amazing ideas!!
I've linked up with Teaching Blog Addict for the fabulous Freebie Friday!
