Mrs. Noriega from Santa Ana CA is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Marvelous TK and Kinder Mathematicians

My students need math manipulatives such as dough mats, counting tubes, sequencing trains, counters, and more, as well as a set of math centers, to use as we learn and practice various mathematical skills.

My Students

My TK and Kinder class aims to capture the curiosity and desire of students to learn thorough exploration, cooperation and critical thinking.

My young TK and Kinder scholars are active and really grasp to a hands on approach to learning.

Student learning focuses on critical thinking, collaboration, creativity, and communication as they develop math skills. My 4 and 5 year old students are dedicated learners who come to school eager to learn. The school where I teach services students of low socioeconomic status and English language learners. Many of my students fall into these groups and need many different modalities to not only learn the English language but build the essential skills and abilities needed to succeed in the 21st century.

My Project

My students emerge themselves in an environment where they can focus and develop their math skills at their own pace through many computer based programs using iPads they share in class. However, it is essential students have the opportunity to problem solve by discussing their learning with one another and have multiple opportunities to use a variety of representations to solve and communicate their mathematical ideas. But we are missing a resources I think are key to take their learning to a new level, ...manipulatives and hands on games!! I know it might sound basic but we don't have much. Their young hands need use manipulatives and as they problem solve and develop counting, cardinality, operation, and algebraic thinking skills. My students take advantage of every opportunity that they have. Please support them by helping our class get materials to prepare them for a lifetime of success.

The Common Core aligned materials will be used to practice and reinforce mathematic skills.

The math games and manipulatives will be used as a class, in small group, and individually. Students will have assess to these learning tools to enhance and solidify foundational math skills.
