Hooray! This project is fully funded

Math games excite children and, in turn, they help the children learn important math skills. One of my goals this year as a new first grade teacher, is too enrich my 90 minute math period with math games that children will play when they are done with their work. I am teaching at an underfunded DC public charter school near Columbia Heights and Adams Morgan. I do not have the means to buy the materials to start these games in my classroom. I am requesting big math cards, dot dice, a class Tangram set, a money set, and addition/subtraction set, and number lines for my wonderful class of first graders. I will use the materials to teach my children games and to enrich math period. I want my children to have a strong foundation in math. Children's excitement for math and their experience with math in the early grades are predictors of their future successes in math. I am writing this proposal because I am dedicated to the education system in DC and I believe we must be able to equally fund and support all children's education.
