Ms. Miller from Oswego IL is requesting Reading Nooks, Desks & Storage through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Help Us Organize Our Math Tools!

My students need tools to organize math games and materials. The craft cabinet and interlocking storage containers will hold dice, Unifix cubes, base-ten blocks and more for every day math activities.

My Students

Students learn in a variety of ways. Hands-on games and activities give them a fun and interactive way to practice math standards.

In my classroom, we talk, laugh, discuss, learn, and share every day.

I want every student to feel like they are an important part of our community. We build each other up by helping and complimenting the positive attributes of those around us. The students in my classroom are fun, energetic six and seven-year-old children who are excited about learning and find joy in discovering new things about the world around them. They are so eager to ask questions and think about new information and experiences.

I work at a K-5, Title I school, with students who are in various programs such STARS (Skills Training and Autism Related Services), Gifted and Talented, and who also receive math and reading services. We are also a school with a K-5 Dual Language program where students learn in both Spanish and English. Many of our students attend our school for these programs and have another home school.

My Project

The materials that I'm requesting will be used to organize math materials including dice, unifix cubes, dominoes, and base-ten blocks. These materials are used every day during our guided math time. Students use them in small groups, independently, and with partners. Each student will have their own case of math materials to use and keep organize.

Students will use various manipulatives to work on addition, subtraction, fact families, and place value.

Having these containers and individual cases for each student ensures that they will have their materials organized and ready to use whenever they are working in centers or playing math games. They also have a place to quickly put their materials away. Quick clean-up maximizes learning time and keeps the materials safe and clean so they are ready for new students each year.
