I work at the Strawberry Point Elementary School in Mill Valley, CA as the Reading and Math teacher for grades K-5. I work with students who experience difficulty in all different areas of learning. Some children require help in learning to read, some require extra help with math concepts and skills, while others benefit from help with writing skills. I also work with second language learners (approximately 9% of our school population). One difficult area of learning for many young children is learning how to tell time. I have found an award-winning Talking Clever Clock that teaches children in a fun and engaging way. Children who struggle benefit from fun ways of learning. I could definitely use this teaching tool to excite struggling students. Another area of learning that confuses many otherwise competent math students is fractions, percents and decimals. My students could definitely benefit from fractions kits that show them the correlation between these three concepts in a colorful, interesting format. In addition, it is important for them to see fractional units in various shapes. A set of square, triangular and circular fractions would be well-utilized in my classroom to reinforce lessons on fractions. Another valuable teaching tool is a classroom money kit. This item will help my students gain better number sense through the use of play money. I see approximately 22 kids each week in different grade levels and for me to have age appropriate materials that engage these students is really important. It's important to me and my students that they enjoy coming to my room for extra help. Having these items would definitely excite and ignite their learning. I care deeply about helping all students achieve their best. I know that my students would be most appreciative of these donations. Thank you so much for considering my proposal.
