Having Fun With Math

My students need certain materials to help them with their math skills and their confidence on the subject.

My Students

I have a Kindergarten class of 19 students of all different cultures building a relationship while learning a foreign language. They are ready to be bilingual and are driven by their hunger to learn Spanish. These are kindhearted kids with passionate hearts, looking forward to become bilingual students. They get along with each other so well, and relate to each other by their longing to learn Spanish.

These students love getting together as a group and discussing everything that they have learned.

Their friendships with each other are unbreakable; they have a bond that other classes wish to have. I would love to give these students the best learning experience possible, as they come from low income households and don't have much to be able to experience Spanish at their homes. They all deserve the best education possible.

My Project

My class needs to spend more time exploring the subject of math. We need more games and manipulative tools to help them improve their skills. My classroom needs these materials to help them work independently when they are doing math activities, and help them learn at the own pace and level.

This project can give my students the confidence that they need and the chance to be able to work together all at once.

It's important that they build good relationships between them as this boosts their confidence with the subject. Many students are self conscious about their math skills, and are even afraid of the subject, but I believe that we can help them be more comfortable and confident with math.
