My Students

My students are so excited to learn new things. My students also have a love of technology. They are in a low income school. Our school building in 55 years old. Not only is it a really old school but it is a dark school....we have not windows in our classroom. Some of our school population comes from a nearby military base.

My Project

I am trying to get manipulatives into my students hands. They need the visual. I also need places to store the manipulatives. Would love any help at all.

These kids are our future.

This year I am teaching math to all the 4th graders at my school. I am also doing small groups so it would be nice to have some of these books and items to use in small groups.

I am also wanting books to read to my class. I would like each child to have a book to follow along with as I read.
