My Project

Covid-19 has impacted my students in ways, including socially and academically. My students learn best with hands-on and open-ended activities.

You can make a HUGE impact on my students with tactile and hands-on counting materials, STEM materials, such as the Create-a-Chain Reaction STEM kit and the Building Brick STEM Challenge Kit, to help them be creative, and practice writing skills with magic wipe boards.

My students love the time to create, play and problem solve but I can only provide so much of this with my own money. The number lines will help my students practice critical math skills that will build as they progress throughout their educational journey.
