My Students

Third grade is that critical math year when students must master basic skills especially multiplication. Please help my students transition into math time by providing a class set of Bellwork Mathematics booklets. Bellwork is a math booklet that is aligned to California State Standards.

Bellwork math booklets are a great teaching resource that help students prepare for math by daily reviewing key concepts.

Using Bellwork math booklets will allow my students to start math immediately after recess as they practice previously taught skills. Currently I teach at a Title 1 school in California which means there is high poverty. Most of my students are English Language Learners. They are bright and eager to learn. As a multiple subjects teacher, I transition into many subjects throughout the day. It helps to have resources such as Bellwork math booklets to help transitions become seamless.

My Project

Bellwork math booklets provide students with the opportunity to get started on math as soon as they come in from recess. Not a minute of class time is wasted. Students complete two pages and then I correct all-class. It's a great way to transition into the math lesson. The booklets are compact and fit nicely at each child's desk. The booklets are self-contained which means the teacher does not have to do any photocopying thus saving valuable time and money.

Your donation will help my students achieve mastery in third grade math.

At one time these booklets were provided to students. However, due to severe budget cuts Bellwork math booklets are considered a luxury. You can read more about Bellwork resources at: www.bellwork.com. Thank you for your interest in my proposal. You never know how you may change a child's life through your generosity.
