Hooray! This project is fully funded
Hello, I am a third grade teacher at P.S. 345 in East New York, Brooklyn, where 98% of our students receive free lunch. They are children who have the desire to learn, but to their dismay, are performing below grade level.
First and foremost, my goal is to create an inviting, hands-on learning environment where the students can feel and touch and manipulate objects as they learn. I would like to create a math center where students can take math beyond the abstract and explore the concepts at their fingertips. My students are entitled to the same opportunities that other children have and not just a workbook that even our parents have trouble understanding. By creating this math center, students will be able to have a concrete
visualization of the concepts they are learning.
Some children need to SEE and TOUCH math to understand it. The Help-Yourself Math Lab and Hands-On Fractions Kits will change the way my students learn math. Fractions and decimals, money, time, place value, measurement, and problem solving are key elements for all third graders to know for testing.
Thank you for your time and your generosity to my students.
