TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
Help me give my students math tools to help build number sense. These items will assist students in knowing the importance of place value and gives them a hands-on representation of why numbers are what they are.
My students have special needs and special abilities. They come from a community where they all receive free lunch and breakfast. Some can barely afford school supplies. I did what I could this year in buying things that could get them where they need to be, but it isn't nearly enough. With children who are two to three grade levels behind, I'm left to get them to a point of growth. Supplying my students with classroom resources will give them the hope they need to realize that success is at their fingertips.
All students have a promising future, but that future needs to be ignited by their inner potential.
I want to set my students up for success, and that setup involves getting them the resources. They need to be challenged and pushed to the next level. Each student is different, but sometimes we can expect them to fall into a cookie cutter mold that is far beyond realistic. As any passionate teacher would, I want the best for my students.
Place value is crucial in establishing number sense early on in the school year. As students are required to increase their knowledge of what numbers are, and what those numbers truly represent, it can become difficult to understand. In the fifth grade, students are expected to have place value knowledge of whole numbers, and decimals/fractions.
I find that my special needs students lack basic place value knowledge, making it difficult for them to grasp the new concepts that come along.
Having these tools will allow students to see what each number represents, and build their skills in writing and understanding numbers in standard, expanded, and written form.
