Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Help to make math exciting and fun for my students instead of subjecting them to pages and pages of worksheets! By supporting our project you will be energizing our math stations and helping us to problem solve with one another, cracking the mystery of math in an interactive and inspiring way.

My California public school students are 3rd graders who possess a wide range of math abilities.

By differentiating the math program with games and activities, the needs of ALL students will be met, allowing me to work individually with small groups of students.

My Project

My students need dice, fraction puzzles, bingo games, hands-on manipulatives, multiplication learning games, game buzzers, graphing puzzles and calculators that will support our math workshop. Opportunities will abound for problem solving and collaboration, skills that are essential for our future business leaders. But most importantly, math becomes FUN once again instead of a dreaded pencil and paper activity, devoid of challenge.

Your donations will change the face of math in my classroom!

Students will be inspired by the materials and will have the opportunity to crack the mystery of math in a fun and inspiring way. Thank you, in advance, to, Chevron Fuel Your Schools, and all of you wonderful donors, working to make a change in the education of our children. YOU ARE MAKING A DIFFERENCE AND YOU ARE APPRECIATED!!!!!
