Mrs. Smith from Midvale UT is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Making Math Meaningful

Help me give my students the chance to practice skills they might have missed in 1st grade, can practice in 2nd grade, and get ready for 3rd grade with these hands-on materials for math!

My Students

My students, a majority of whom are English Language Learners, attend a Title I school, highly impacted by poverty and trauma. However, my students' resiliency to these adverse conditions is inspiring. In an effort to help foster their resiliency and meet their needs, students at our school are now learning within a two-teacher model. I am their math teacher.

My students, after (and still) dealing with the effects of being absent from the classroom due to COVID need hands-on materials for math.

Having hands-on materials will help them understand math concepts more readily, and help to close any gaps time away from the classroom due to what COVID might have created.

My Project

The whiteboards give students the chance to each have their own writing area to respond to teacher-guided instruction, or to use as scratch paper during required online learning in the classroom.

These materials can be used in a variety of ways.

The base ten frames can support learners who are behind with basic counting and adding can support second-graders in adding to 20 and be used as arrays to begin teaching multiplication for 3rd grade.

All the material requested will help students close any gaps due to being absent during the pandemic.
