Mrs. Millwood from Forest City NC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Instilling a Love of Reading and Creating Hands-On Mathematicians

My students need individual book bins for Daily 5, a leveled library cart with book bins for organizing our books, and various materials to use for literacy/math stations during Daily 5 and Guided Math.

My Students

My classroom consists of 19 first grade students from a variety of backgrounds: socioeconomic, diversity, and varying family arrangements. My school is identified as a Title I funded school, which is based on the number of students receiving free and reduced lunch.

I believe that hands-on activities increase student engagement and allow for differentiation in the classroom.

Working in small groups allows me to better assess students' learning and working in centers makes learning fun and engaging for first graders!

My Project

I use a Daily 5 structure for literacy instruction. Our students will use the storage cart and sturdy book bins during read to self and read to a friend rotations. Having a leveled library cart will allow students to easily choose a book that is a "good fit" for them. The students will use other hands-on materials during word work centers.

After seeing the success of a Daily 5 structured literacy block, I have decided to begin the same type of structure in math.

In order to implement Guided Math, we will need various materials for students to use during hands-on math centers.
