I teach kindergarten at a Title I school in East San Jose, Ca. Eighteen of my twenty students are English language learners, and all receive free or reduced lunch. My student's academic ability greatly differs. I have students who come into kindergarten being able to count passed 100, and those who do not know enough English to even say the number 1. I have students who are learning addition and subtraction while others are still learning how to count. In order to differentiate and teach my students at their individual appropriate instructional level, I am asking for math books and manipulatives that will help me create math centers. Centers are a great instructional strategy that allows for students to be working on many different learning goals all at the same time. Centers also allow for students to be productively working independently, freeing valuable time for me to work with those students who are struggling worse. Many of these centers are reproducible. I would easily be able to share them with my colleagues in Kindergarten and First grade. With your generous donation, my class, as well as seven others would benefit just this year. These products will be used for many years to come. Thank you very much.
