Mrs. Warwick from Sioux Falls SD is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Critical Math Thinking Through Engaging Activities

My students need concrete, hands-on experiences when learning how to count, measure, add and subtract. They need to hear math stories and solve them with the use of counters and blocks.

My Students

My students come from diverse backgrounds and different home lives. They come everyday excited and ready to learn something new. Many of them have not had school experiences before kindergarten.

I teach in a Title 1 building where many of my students come from low income houses and are English Language Learners.

They need hands-on experiences differentiated to their diverse learning needs. My students love to learn and have fun while doing it. They also enjoy having stories read to them.

My Project

My students work on math kills everyday. Kindergarteners need a strong foundation in number sense and counting and cardinality. Some kindergarteners enter kindergarten already knowing how to rote count, count objects, name and write numbers, measure, and work with number combinations. Other students enter kindergarten without any of these skills. They needs lots of exposure to these math concepts. Hearing math stories and manipulating counters will help build that foundation and understanding.

My students will be able to learn at their level with the use of these stories and manipulatives.

They will engaged and have fun while learning. Students will be able to pick math stories and manipulatives that interest them to work on their math skills. These materials will give my students the concrete open-ended experiences they need to develop their math skills.
