Help me give my students an engaging and fun way to practice and master our academic concepts using black lights for Glow Math!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are constantly on a quest for knowledge! They love exploring and discovering through hands-on activities, and working collaboratively with classmates. My 4th grade class shows each other support in their endeavors inside and outside our classroom walls, and they all have a heart of gold!
My students embrace learning opportunities, and thrive when given the chance to apply knowledge and skills into real life scenarios.
My school is centrally located in a close-knit community, and it is common to see students continuing their educational journey with peers even when the school day is over.
I have the privilege of working with not just one, but two classes of amazing 4th graders. They come to school each day and give their all, and are such hard working students. In 4th grade, there are SO many new math concepts that are introduced. My students embrace each concept, and strive for mastery. I have seen them grow in confidence, and I encourage them to celebrate their gains in math. During each unit, I see all the effort put forth and would love to provide them with a fun way to review and practice these skills before moving on to the next unit full of new content.
It is my vision to see students engaging in hands-on application of math concepts through Math Glow Games using black lights to create a fun, yet rigorous, experience to enhance learning.
While wearing bright colored vests and glow in the dark accessories, students will have an exciting experience to look forward to at the end of our math units to 'shine brightly' as they work through math problems using multiple strategies and collaboration in a game format. Students will be eager to put forth their best effort as they proudly show the skills they have mastered and I anticipate that I will see excitement and 100% engagement.
I believe that math is more meaningful when we connect it to fun experiences that bring enjoyment and teamwork. Having Glow Math in the classroom would bring so much joy to my hard working 4th graders, and would be a wonderful way to still have meaningful application while celebrating the end of a unit! Thank you for helping me make this vision a reality!
