Making Mathematicians

Help me give my students the materials they need to become mathematicians! We need binders and 120 charts to create math binders to store the materials that we will use each day during our math block.

My Students

Each day my students are faced with many challenges. Many of them come from high poverty homes. Despite the many challenges they may face, I believe that I can provide them the support and encouragement they need to be successful in our ever-changing world.

My students are creative, intelligent, and very energetic.

They love to create, build, and learn new things. Each day I welcome my students and we start our day with a positive message. We work together as a family supporting each other and growing together. Although I can not control their home life, I can control what they are experiencing in my classroom. By having a loving and positive mindset, I hope to inspire each of my students to strive for great things. I hope to instill in them that they can be whoever they want to be.

My Project

We are working hard in first grade to become mathematicians. We would love to be able to create math binders with all of the manipulatives we use to help us be successful during our math block each day.

It is very important for students to be able to learn to use manipulatives to help them think critically about the math they are learning.

This will also help students become independent thinkers. We would also love to be able to incorporate a number of the day to help us build number sense. The materials in our project will help us have a successful discussion of the number of the day. We will also be using the headphones during our math block to engage in fun math games on our tablets. One of our favorite activities is playing Splash Math, which helps us continue to reinforce the math skills we are learning during our math lessons.

By donating to our classroom project, you are helping to create independent critical thinkers. We greatly appreciate all of your support.
