My Students

The students in my class are eager to learn and continuously strive to do their very best. We are a Title I school and have a high population of Hispanic students. A high percentage of my students receive free lunch. They live in a community that is constantly rippled with crime and the students are considered to be living near or at poverty. I want to create a fun, loving environment so that students want to come to school and learn. Kindergarten is the foundation and sets the stage for the rest of their academic success.

My Project

The resources that I have selected for this project will give my students the opportunity to love math by learning to explore, build and create during center time. Math is often seen as scary and difficult, however it is the most creative and mind blowing subject of them all for me. The robots and manipulatives will allow my students to get hands on experience with one-to-one correspondence, number identification and number representation. Number sense is an important kindergarten standard that promotes confidence and encourages students to think flexibly. The puzzles will be used to help students explore numbers and to manipulate them in a way that is not limited to your traditional pencil to paper.

I want to create mathematicians in my classroom by making math fun and engaging.

If my project gets funded, my students will be able to solve problems, look for patterns, use their imaginations, share ideas, and ask questions during our math block. Students learn best when they are engaged with hands-on activities and it allows me to enrich their minds to help them retain information.

With your help, we can increase academic achievement by providing my students with kinesthetic activities that will cement a strong mathematical foundation.
