Ms. Blount from Bronx NY is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Hands On With Math

My students need math manipulatives such as UniLink cubes, dice, counters, shapes and base ten blocks to help them go beyond pencil and paper and begin to learn each new concept with a "hands-on" approach.

My Students

My students are growing and learning in the same small, tight knit, school community that inspired me to be a teacher. They are dreamers, thinkers, talkers, and questioners. They are mini inspirations to themselves and others around them, even if they don't know it yet. They are budding ambassadors, world travelers, scientists, entrepreneurs, teachers... They are our future and I want to give them a great start to their long successful career. They are all young, inquisitive boys who will soon be young, impactful men that will take over the world.

My Project

These math manipulatives would make such a big impact on my students being able to learn math concepts. We would use them at the beginning of learning each new concept for a "hands-on" approach. For example, my students at the beginning of 2nd grade review all of their math facts to prepare to learn double digit addition.

Some students will use the manipulatives to help them solve the problems.

If the problem is 9+7, then they would create one group of 9 UniLink cubes and another group of 7 UniLink cubes. The student would then combine the groups together to get the sum. UniLink cubes are also great for teaching fractions because they come in many different colors.
