Mrs. C. from Worcester MA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Family Math Day

My Students

My students are from a diverse and high poverty population. They are hardworking and enthusiastic about learning. Every day, they come to school despite hardships and engage in rigorous instruction. Our students take pride in our school. We are their extended family, and they count on us to educate and guide them every day. We have a large group of immigrant students. They are in our classrooms with little or no English skills. Despite their struggles, we perform at a high level.

My Project

This project is about families connecting with their child's learning and gathering resources to help support their child at home. Our students and families will have the opportunity to create math make and take games to help build fact fluency and other math concepts. The materials needed are index cards to make flash cards, dice and cards to play math games at home. The Ziploc baggies will be their take-home bags to keep all materials in. We asked for some math games to play at school. We will use the paper to run off games to play at home. Every family will take home materials to help support math at home.

Research over the past years has shown that engaging families in their children's education increases student achievement and decreases dropout rates.

Our data shows that our students need reinforcement from home. Students who are supported from home continue the learning connection and have much more success.

I'm so excited to bring this opportunity to our school. With your help, we can help make this happen for our students and families. It will make a world of difference in a child's life and bring forever memories for them.
