I would like to advance the Algebra centers of my "math magic" workshop. Currently, my students participate in math centers while I teach small groups of students who need extra help in a math topic. This really helps each child learn all the math objectives. Right now, I have a variety of home-made centers put together using my own money, but there are several items I have found that would be more motivating, allow for better monitoring and assessment (did the student get what they were practicing?)as well as more targeted to the students exact objective. However, as with anything, these things cost more than I am able to provide out of my pocket, and my school is not able to provide because we are not eligible for a lot of funding from county, state, and federal sources. To add to the math workshop, I am looking for funds to buy a variety of math hands-on practice items which target Goal 5 of the math objectives taught in the fourth grade. Everything is completely reusable, so it would be used for countless years to come. I can not stress how hard it is to supply motivating math programs that are designed with each individual child in mind at a school that receives little funding. Please help make some "math magic" for countless students in my classroom. Thank you!
