Mrs. Mason from Keysville VA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need hands-on math activities; snap & slide number bonds, ten-frames magnetic answer board, giant activity dice, and learn to count dough mats.
This is my 22nd year teaching. 21 of those years have been in kindergarten. I can't imagine teaching any other grade. I see such wonderful changes that take place in just this one school year. They come to me not knowing how to write their name nor able to even draw a stick figure. By the end of the year, they are able to write sentences and can draw very detailed pictures with a lot of colors. It is very satisfying to witness such accomplishments. I love to see their little eyes shine when I tell them how good their handwriting has become or how artistic their drawings are, their spelling, using space in sentences etc... I am not that artistic, but they make me feel like I am. After I model a writing/drawing activity, they OOH and AWW my work. It just makes you giggle.
My sweet students come in each day with a big smile ready to learn something new.
I love that they feel so loved by me and that school is such a happy place for them. I get called Mama almost as much as my name.
I am in need of hands on math activities for the children in my kindergarten classroom. Kids learn differently today than they did even 5 years ago. All children learn differently, but with so much technology in the lives of little ones, they like vibrant colors and things they can touch. Paper and pencil activities are not as beneficial or as much fun as working with your hands to learn new skills. One of the main things I focus on in my classroom is trying to make learning fun. I want my children to see school as not only a safe place, but a fun place.
