Mr. Cohen from Tulsa OK is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students math manipulatives, such as dry erase boards and fraction tiles, as well as name plate sleeves to improve efficiency of our math center rotations.
I teach 46 incredible 5th grade scholars who are dedicated to their education and pursuing their passions. Each of the two classes has a team name that represents who they are and what they aspire to be. The morning class is the Black Panthers and their self-defined core values are: Resilience, protect one another, fight for what's right, and do it all in swag. My afternoon class is the Lion Pack and their core values are: strength in unity, kings of the jungle (school), lead with pride, and grit.
I watch each of these classes live out their values each day and align them to their individual goals.
My students' average grade level in math is 3.8. They understand the hard work and sacrifice it will take to close the gap which has been cultivated by inequity. However, we focus on preventing the weight of disparity from inhibiting the enjoyment from learning.
Our growing sense of community is what drives my students and I every day. We are working towards understanding individual achievement as a facet of teamwork and placing kindness and empathy in the face of disagreement and judgement.
In August, my scholars and I received some basic supplies (pencils, paper, binders, markers, etc.) from Title I funding at our school. However, in order to enhance students' learning we need some additional supplies.
Currently, my students lack the opportunity for hands-on learning in the classroom.
Manipulatives help students construct an understanding of ideas that they can then connect to mathematical vocabulary and symbols. These tools are crucial, particularly for my students 2-3 grade levels low in math, students with IEPs, as well as the 12 english learners. With the opportunity for differentiated learning, all of my scholars will be able to excel in the classroom.
The seating arrangement of our classroom is currently based on test scores and behavior and is frequently subject to change. It is time consuming for me and confusing for students to be changing seating without a flexible labeling system. Name tags and sleeves are a durable solution to this efficiency problem. With these supplies, I'll be able to quickly move name tags without creating new labels and save time in class.
