Mrs. Ward from Riverdale GA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Escape Room: Math Version

My Students

Hello and thank you for taking the time to look over my project. I serve students with all demographics and I love every moment of it. I teach math to 103 third graders. I work daily to build concept and then provide my students with strategies they would need to tackle skills independently. I have many students who you would consider "average," some students that are identified "gifted" and some students that require EIP Services, DES and have written IEPs. A lot of my student lack motivation and this year I have many ideas to make the classroom come to life. I appreciate you again for taking interest in my projects.

My Project

Help my students truly get a hands-on, engaging math experience by supplying them with one of the top selling educational product. The Breakout EDU kit puts students to the test of solving problems in order to "escape" and move on to the next riddle. Student have to learn to work together, critically think, and most importantly, they must know the standards being taught in order to answer the questions. This kit opens the door to friendly competition amongst groups. After virtually learning all of these months, teachers are going to have to be creative with getting students back motivated about being in the classroom, this is what this and many of my other projects will be based on. I appreciate you taking the time to read about all of my wild, some may say crazy, ideas about bringing math to life.
