Mrs. Price from Oklahoma City OK is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students math manipulatives such as dice and spinners as well as a good pencil sharpener to keep with our math supplies.
My school is a neighborhood charter school. We serve three hundred thirty students in Pre-K through 5th grade. 90% of our students are below the poverty line and receive free or reduced price lunches. Our zip code ranks highest in our state of incarcerated parents, child abuse, and single-parent families. Though these stats are staggering, our kids are resilient, determined and one success story after another.
Each year, I am motivated by the wonder and amazement I see take place within my kids.
They are future business leaders, entrepreneurs, artists, athletes, singers, dancers, comedians, and teachers. They possess a grit and determination that is unseen in many adults, and they know that lessons learned from failing are more valuable than money.
We are led by a principal and a team of teachers who are visible, engaged, and invested in every aspect of success for my kids. This team fosters the idea that no matter what your background, you have a chance to make it better through education. We believe that empowering our students with experiences will make them the problem solvers of tomorrow.
In our classroom, we strive to have very hands on and engaging lessons. When introducing a new math concept, we want to make sure that we make it a memorable experience so that students are able to remember the skill and apply it later on down the road. One of the best ways to do this is through games. These games often require things such as dice or spinners. The dice requested in this project have more sides, which will allow my students to work with larger numbers as they progress. The spinners can be placed on top of any game board due to their transparent back.
I am also always looking for ways to save time and resources.
The dependable pencil sharpener will allow me to sharpen several pencils beforehand and have them available for our lessons and activities. We use colored pencils from time to time and it is not always convenient for me to stop and sharpen the colored pencils while we are working.
I am so thankful for the support of Donors Choose!
