My Students

Math has always been a tricky and complicated topic for a lot of students. There are a lot of abstract ideas, facts to memorize and problems to solve. Wouldn't it be nice to have manipulatives to learn these concepts with and games to practice on?

My students are wonderful and energetic students who work really hard.

The pressures of the Common Core and the third grade test can easily frustrated the average students. My students work really hard to keep up and exceed the expectations that are placed on them. We have supportive administration and parents. I am looking something extra to keep my students motivated and engaged.

My Project

The materials I am requesting involve manipulatives, Foam: Fraction Dominoes and games for various third grade concepts such as multiplication, division and fractions. The manipulatives will be used in the classroom to make abstract ideas and concepts become concrete. Students will be able to touch and manipulate the materials to model their problems and their thinking. The different math centers and games will be used to reinforce concepts that have been taught in an independent way. The games can be practiced individually, in a small group or through the use of the SmartBoard.

The donation of these materials to our classroom will help make math a time that the students look forward to.

Half the battle of teaching math is getting the students excited to learn and engaged in the lesson. With these materials, the students will have the opportunity to learn and develop their social skills as well.
