Life Long Learning

My students need math materials to help us with the new Common Core Standards. We currently have no math textbook and need some extra tools, like the KNex set and the Math Matters, to improve math instruction.

My Students

"One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish." If only math were truly that easy. My students are amazing individuals and work so hard to rise above their challenges. They have no textbook to aid with math, so each day we are challenged to make math authentic, well rounded and exciting. Please help us.

My students are 2nd graders from a high poverty elementary school.

They are amazing and will do anything to rise to the challenge. Math is a subject most of them enjoy, but we need more tools to make mathematics authentic and hands on. Many of my students need to participate and physically do the math they are learning. Others catch on more quickly and need a boost of enrichment.

My Project

I am requesting some much needed tools to aid in math instruction. I am asking for manipulatives to aid in the learning process for geometry and fractions. Pictures and hand made materials are great and will be used, but these tools will add an extra depth to learning that is needed. I am also requesting some resource books to supply extra leveled activities for individual practice. These books will give me a few extra tools for meeting the needs of all students. Finally, I am asking for a set of books that are related to math. These books will offer real world examples for how 2nd graders can and will use math outside of school. It is so important for students to learn this early in life so they understand the importance of math instruction.

Thank you for considering our project.

With your help and generosity, my students will have a way to be a step ahead in math instruction. We will have the tools needed and necessary for making math real and enjoyable. Please help us make math tools a reality within our classroom.
