For the Love of Math

Help me give my students jumbo buttons, vehicle counters, and color cubes so they have manipulatives they can use for counting.

My Students

My class of little learners comes in eager and ready to learn every day. More than half of my class are English Language Learners and a third never attended preschool.

I teach at a Title I school in California and 100% of the students at our school receive free breakfast and lunch.

Every second and fourth Tuesday of the month, Feeding America supplies free groceries at our school through the School Pantry Program. Our school is close to the Mexico/US border. The ELL students we service are mostly Spanish speaking.

My Project

My students love our math block because it gives them the opportunity to use the few manipulatives we have in the classroom. We have a few bears and unifix cubes. My students deserve more. We are very limited to what we can use because we don't have enough. My students need these manipulatives so they can sort, create patterns, order objects, and learn to comprehend mathematical operations.

Kids learn by doing.

It is essential they have the opportunity to learn through hands-on experience. I want my students to build a strong math foundation. Many of my students did not attend preschool and do not have number sense. They will benefit greatly from these resources.
