Ms. Tridnivka from Melbourne FL is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Hands on Math!

My students need plastic pattern blocks and UniLink cubes to learn math concepts in engaging ways.

  • $350 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students come from a diverse background. I serve regular education students, English Language Learners and Exceptional Education students. Many of my students come from economically disadvantaged homes. Even though there are many differences, we all come together to learn.

My goal is to provide my students with as many opportunities to engage in the learning process, find a love for it , and continue to be lifelong learners.

My students are unique 6 and 7 year olds with open minds and an eagerness to learn. They are sponges who want to take in as many experiences and as much information as I can give them and they can find on their own. Our classroom is a community where we support, cheer, and encourage each others individuality.

My Project

As we embark on a new math curriculum, students will learn new skills and number concepts.

My students need hands on materials to help them move from a concrete understanding to an abstract understanding of math concepts.

They will be using pattern blocks to allow them to see how shapes can be decomposed into other shapes and composed into new shapes/designs. The UniLink cubes will enable them to have a strong foundation in counting and basic addition and subtraction skills. The Rekenrek will be used to help develop addition and subtraction strategies, such as doubling or finding near doubles as well as thinking in terms of 5s and 10s, instead of counting from one each time or counting on in addition and subtraction.

Dry erase pockets and markers will be used daily to record their thinking while problem solving real world scenarios through word problems.
