Fun with Fractions in Third Grade

My students need hands-on math manipulatives such as the fraction strips to help them grasp fraction concepts.

My Students

The students in my school come from diverse and low-income backgrounds. Many of the students experience emotional trauma, such as homelessness and extreme family dysfunction.

As a teacher, I am grateful that each school day, I can provide a stable and predictable environment for them to learn and grow as individuals, as well as enjoy coming to school.

I believe students, all students, deserve a chance to shine and live up to their full potential and be in a safe and positive learning environment.

My Project

Fractions can be a difficult concept for students to learn. Math manipulatives can help students understand new concepts by giving them something that's not only tangible, but fun. In the past, I have made fraction strips out of paper. Unfortunately, these models do not last as long as I need them to in order to complete our fraction unit.

I have found that my students are more engaged and focused when they use math manipulatives during our lessons.

It would benefit my students greatly to have fraction manipulatives that are both durable and long lasting. Please help my students by donating to our math needs with the requested fractions kit.
