My Students

Do you remember how hard it was to memorize your addition, subtraction, and multiplication facts? My students feel the same way you did back then. However, through this high-quality and heavy-duty math game, learning key facts becomes less boring and tiresome and more interactive and engaging!

My students consist of 40 energetic and fun-loving kids.

They come from many different backgrounds including low socio-economic homes and homes that do not speak English. They love to learn and want to please their teacher and parents. Our school is located in a rural area where about 60% of our students qualify for free or reduced priced lunches. We are a close-knit community where family values and respect are still taught to our children.

My Project

The resources you are donating to today will help make learning exciting. So many times, it is very difficult for us as teachers to compete with video games and computers to help keep our students motivated and engaged. That's what the Smart Chute is all about! It is an exciting way for students to learn without even realizing they are. As cards are inserted into the tower, students compete to answer before the card is then flipped to the answer side and dropped into the base below. This fast-paced game will keep all the students focused on the specific skill at hand.

I am asking for your support with my project because I know how much it will benefit my students.

There are many activities that I would like to give my students, however, during this tough economic time it is difficult to provide the students with all the materials they need. This small project is one way that you can help my students have access to interactive learning they would normally not get the opportunity to have. The great part is that my future students will also enjoy this game!
