My Students

The school is located in an urban community, with a high rate of poverty. We have up to 30 students in every classroom each year. My goal is that the students become a community of learners and help each other grow. I try to teach my students through many different learning styles. We use hands-on tools, technology, books, videos, and more. We work in partners and small groups regularly, and students really work together to help each other be successful.

My students come from a variety of home situations, so they are learning academic and social skills in all subjects.

When my students go home, they do not all get the same academic support. This makes it extremely important to do anything I can during the school day to help them foster the love of learning.

My Project

I am requesting math manipulatives that will align directly with the Guided Math Kits that I will be using with my K-2 students. I teach small group math intervention for the lowest performing students in kindergarten, first and second grade.

Through the support of the Donorschoose.org Community, I have been able to get the Guided Math Curriculum for K-2, and this project will allow me to have the right tools to go along with all of the lessons.

Each lesson requires specific hands-on tools that go along with the task. I have some of these materials at my school, but I am missing quite a few. The items requested will allow me to follow the lessons and use the right hands-on tools with my students.

We will be using frogs, insects, counters, dice and more to build strong number sense and understanding of math concepts. So, if the lesson is focused on the students counting frogs on the lily pad, they will actually be able to use frog counters.

Having the right math materials will allow for each lesson to flow smoothly, and ultimately student understanding to grow.
