My Students

My students are determined and kind middle school special education students. They have a great deal of enthusiasm. They especially love music. They are behind their peers academically but they put a lot of effort into everything they do!

Our school is located in a low income neighborhood and it is difficult for us to get the supplies we need to help this unique group of learners.

It is an urban area filled with diverse cultures. The city itself is a low income community surrounded by wealthier communities.

My Project

My students are hands-on learners. In order for them to really understand the difficult math concepts they are expected to know today, they need math manipulatives to help them bring the topics to life.

Help my students be able to grasp difficult concepts such as multiplying fractions, ratios, and more in a concrete way.

These materials will give my students a hands-on experience and really help them to embrace math.

I will also be able to use the laminator to create reusable materials for them to use. They will be able to write on the sheets with the markers.

Help my students understand math and learn to love it!
