My students need one Monkey Math Balance and a complete set of Self-Teaching Math Machines.
In my classroom there is a lot of creativity going on in math, language arts, and creative arts. One activity my students enjoy is I.W.T. (independent work time). During this time, students have an opportunity to read books, work at a language arts center or a science center.
Currently, I have twenty-six kindergarten/first grade special education students in the Los Angeles Unified School District.
My students are very bright kids and great observers, but they often get off task when they want to share their observations. For example, "I like your shirt... it has purple flowers... Oh! and tiny green leaves. They look like little circles." "Okay, now back to the letter 'L' class," I said. I have been a teacher for twenty-seven years. My school is a multi-cultural environment. Language arts is my passion and I am always trying to incorporate fine arts whenever my resources allow me.
One thing that would really enhance our learning centers, my small group instruction, and the student large and small motor skills, is the Monkey Math Balance. This colorful scale lets kids see more/less than and also give them hands-on with addition and subtraction. With a partner, students can create addition and subtraction problems of their own and solve them. Many students struggle with more/less than but with the monkey math balance students will be able to visualize this concept. The Self-Teaching Math Machine is an exciting way for students to teach themselves and work independently. They simply press each equation button and the answer pops up for immediate reinforcement. They can also work with a partner and further develop the verbal skills that are needed for the Common Core State Standards.
Your donations will improve our learning centers and provide constructive activities for the students.
With these new materials in our class, my students will now have access to better resources that create a fun learning environment, challenge their minds and help them develop the skills they need to elevate successfully in their education experience.Read More
