As a teacher at a Title I school, I struggle to keep the divergent learners in my class engaged in every part of my math lessons. Our school is 86 percent free and reduced lunch, and 33% ESOL. I plan and plan and some of my special needs students and ESOL students just do not get it in regards to math. I have found that when I plan activities where exploratory learning drives the lesson, both my special needs and ESOL students thrive. The problem I face is creating enough activities and resources to use on a consistent basis. Lakeshore Learning has great math manipulatives and kits that are designed to encourage exploratory learning. These kits can be used as take home kits or used in the classroom for hands-on learning. I am requesting for this proposal to have Lakeshore Clipboard Math as well as the child friendly clipboards that will make my math lessons outstanding. The Clipboard Math kit covers such skills as tallies, graphing, problem-solving, 2 digit addition, and measuring, all of which are South Carolina first grade standards for math. Help me make math meaningful and fun for all of my students by funding this proposal.
