Mrs. Maurer from Westerville OH is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Manipulation through Base Ten Blocks

Help me give my students base ten manipulative blocks in order to help them add and subtract with hands on materials. This allows students to visually understand how hundreds, tens and ones work in place value.

My Students

My students come to school with a love of learning and excited to read stories. They absolutely love to read books that they can go to another world in. They come to school each ready to read and be challenged in their reading.

Our school is a charter school in Westerville, Oh, which is a suburb in Columbus, OH.

I have 26 second grade students in my homeroom classroom. Our school is a Title I school which means the majority of my students come from a low socioeconomic background.

Like many charter schools we do not receive the same funds as a traditional public school which makes it difficult to obtain materials needed to teach my students. This impacts the supplies that we have in the classroom to help children learn the academic content. My students want to use materials that will help them understand!

My Project

The use of math manipulatives is a necessity in my classroom to help students understand and apply concepts taught that involve adding and subtracting with regrouping. My students would like to use base ten blocks (rods-tens and cubes-ones) to be able to add and subtract to help with regrouping. Manipulative materials help students grasp concepts that they are struggling with.

These manipulative materials will allow each student to have their own base ten blocks to use during math instruction and independent classroom work.

This donation will give me base ten blocks, as well, to model problems with students. Help my students manipulate math!
