Mrs. H. from Charlotte NC is requesting Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Finger Tapping Calculating

My special needs students need 20 calculators and an overhead calculator because ours are either mis-calculating or not calculating at all! The overhead calculator will benefit my 5th grade students who need repeated instruction and practice to master using a calculator when solving problems involving fractions.

I teach mild to moderate special needs students who are in third, fourth and fifth grades.

My students need repeated pratice and reteaching in their specific challenge areas such as math, reading and/or writing. Material must be presented in a variety of learning styles in order for students to retain information.

Students need hands on practice with calculators. They also need the visual to see how to use the calculator most effectively.

Your help will make it possible for my students to learn along with their peers. I respect these students who perservere through learning challenges everyday and succeed. Thank you for your help.
