Mrs. Adams from Chillicothe OH is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Fractions! Fractions! Learning Fractions!

My students need fraction cards, fraction puzzles, and a Fraction of the Pizza Game to learn about fractions.

My Students

Our school is located in the foothills of Appalachia. My students are all special needs students who come from low income homes and have been placed into a self-contained type classroom for all academic classes. These students have not felt success in the general classroom setting and have very low self-esteem. They do not have the confidence in themselves that students should have.

It is really sad to know that students feel this way about themselves, and that is why I am coming to you for help.

I want to help better their confidence academically and open their minds to everyday learning activities.

My Project

My students are all visual learners. They all struggle with learning fractions. I would like to have items to help them visualize fractions and how they are represented. Items such as Visualize It! cards, the Fraction of the Pizza Game, and Fractions Playing Cards will help them do that. I will use them in my whole group learning and also during center time where we complete individual tasks along with small group tasks. Students will complete these types of activities in place of using the typical paper and pencil tasks. These tasks get kind of repetitive and boring to my students. Using these items will give students a more hands-on way of learning.
