Ms. R. from New York NY is requesting Other through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Math Lab!

My students need fun math games such as Algebra Tiles and Crammer.

  • $547 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach seventh grade mathematics in a dual language school with a large (>90%) population of English Language Learners (ELLs). Many of my students have interrupted formal educations in the Dominican Republic and the majority (>86%) of our students qualify for free lunch. Some of our families have had to move into shelters this year, further disrupting our students lives.

My ELLs learn best when they can touch the mathematics. They also need time and a place to practice their math skills and a fun context in which to do it. They love to play games and compete with each other. The math lab gives them the structure and the time to learn.

I need to have fun games and activities to engage the students during the math lab period so that I can give individual attention to students who need help with homework or additional help understanding a concept. The games that I have chosen will let the students have fun without iPods, computers, or video games.

My students don't have families that play games together or parents who can help them with homework or study habits. The math lab gives my kids an enjoyable learning environment to practice both their math and their social skills.
