I am third grade ESL teacher at P.S. 42 in the Bronx. My classroom is the only room without calculators and it is very frustrating when I have to skip over certain math games and problems because my kids don't have calculators. Because I teach an ESL class and the program is fairly new to the school, we get looked over because most of my kids don't speak English. But I am trying to fight for my kids because they deserve the right to know how to use a calculators like all the other third grade students. Visually the calculators will help my students recognize their numbers and not get frustrated with trying to compute numbers on their own. I have about 25 kids in my class and a complete set would really be an awesome thing. I really would love my class to have their own set of the calculators so they can play all the math games and just simply learn how to use them. The great thing about your contribution of calculators to my class is that it will be used year after year. Many students will get the privilege of using the calculators that you donated. I appreciate you reading my proposal and I hope that you will help.
