Mrs. Driver from Yonkers NY is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Interacting with Math- Hands On!

Help me give my students the invaluable opportunity to learn math hands on. We have limited resources that provide the experience of actually interacting with math. It is crucial for students to be physically immersed in learning.

My Students

We are superheroes in the classroom. We have many strengths and we use our skills and knowledge we are learning to overcome and work through our weakness. As a team, we want to move forward in our reading and writing. We are ready for any challenge! We are learning with the right mindset, we can persevere!

My school is located in an urban school district.

My fantastic fourth graders are hungry to always learn more. They get upset when they have to put a textbook away, and will ask to bring it home to read our current story or topic some more. Some of them are beginning to see that school is getting more intense as this is a big exam year, but learning is more about what skills and tools they need for life and school, not just to take a test.

We want to build our classroom community with growth mindset, leadership skills, courage to take chances and build social-emotional skills and strategies to handle academic and personal challenges.

My Project

Our theme at school is Courage. My students will build the courage to be more confident with their math skills and strategies with the ETA hands2mind Daily Math Fluency Kit. Several of my students receive ELL and/or special education services. To have the resources for the student to physically be engaged with the manipulatives is essential to their math understanding, The number talks will engage the students to develop a deeper understanding for the hows and whys we do math. My students are amazing and deserve to have every possible advantage to grow and succeed in the world of math.
