Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am a third grade teacher in an Equity + school in Winston-Salem, NC. We currently have about 81% of our students receiving free and reduced lunch. In my own classroom, 95% of the students are on free lunch, five are English as a Second Language students and three receive Special Education services. Because of the diversity in my classroom, many of my children are at different academic levels. This requires me to differentiate my instruction for each student. Often times, these children have a difficult time understanding concepts without being able to truly see them. With the Geometry Activity Kit, my class would be able to develop a better sense of what they are learning. I believe that by interacting with these materials, the students would learn the new geometry concepts much more quickly and easily than through the use of a book alone. The kit will allow the students to construct 3-D geometric figures like cubes and prisms to help them see all the parts. The kit also contains lots of different manipulatives and hands-on activities the children can use, which will help them to see all the geometric shapes and figures that are all around us in the environment. The Take-it-to-Your Seat Math Center book I am requesting contains 15 different center activities that children who finish their class work early can use to help reinforce math skills in all areas. The vocabulary rings I am requesting feature vocabulary words and questions relating to geometry, fractions, measurement, numbers, data analysis and other 3rd grade topics. These rings can be used to play classroom games or can be sent home to give children who are struggling extra practice with the new words we are learning. I know my students would truly benefit from the addition of these items to our classroom math resources. Thank you for your time and consideration of my proposal.
