These materials are needed to make it possible to do our mathematical jobs. As a fifth grade teacher to 100 students in a low socioeconomic school, it is crucial to be frugal. Therefore we try to use dry erase boards rather than paper. This also helps with the conservation of paper waste. The problem that we have had is that my students cannot afford dry erase markers. We also need pencils and a sharpener for test taking. We have amazing systems and routines down for math drills and math practice of application problems. We are just lacking the basic tools. A solid education is what I feel I owe my students. We need adequate tools to get the learning done.
