Hands On Math - So Much Fun!

My students need a set of Math Activity Stations and 20 Student Place Value Practice Boards.

My Students

Do you like math? I didn't always like math as a child, but as I've grown and become a teacher, I realized that the reason I didn't like it very much was because I never explored it hands-on. I believe children need every opportunity to explore math hands-on!

When my first graders began school this year, many of them were not confident in their math skills.

They thought math was "too hard" and it wasn't as fun. As the year has progressed, I have come up with creative ways to make math very hands-on and fun, involving them in real-life problem solving and using all the manipulatives we have in our classroom. However, I teach in a school where the levels of ability in my classroom are very diverse. We have 75% ELL (English Language Learner) students in our school, and over half of my students are ELL and from lower-income families. I find myself struggling to keep all students engaged and learning without having as many materials as I would like. They all love to learn, and I would love to give them more opportunities to explore math hands-on!

My Project

Having these boxes of math activity centers and place value cards will help my students develop fundamental math concepts that will help them be successful in math for years to come. My students will be able to have more hands-on practice with 1st grade math concepts than just paper-and-pencil practice.

Your contribution will mean more than you will ever know!

My first graders love school and they love math, and I hope to keep that passion going for life. I hope you know that by making a small contribution to our classroom, your influence will be felt by many children in the years to come! We thank you for that!
