My first graders are superstars. They have a desire to learn and improve themselves. They want to make their parents and loved ones proud of them. My first graders live in an area prone to violence and poverty.
My first graders want to be successful in life.
However, there are many obstacles in their way. The parents I work with want to help as much as possible, but, because they work, it is hard for my students to get help at home. My students work very hard at the tasks I have them do. They try their hardest to understand the curriculum. My students love coming to my classroom every day to learn. They find it a safe and inviting place to be.
My students need new materials to help them improve their math skills. The supplies will be utilized to create math stations and centers where students will work cooperatively in small groups to practice the math skills we are focusing on. Learning math is such an essential skills and these new supplies will help students learn in an interactive manner.
Having new manipulatives is essential to help engage students in learning and practicing their math skills.
Students will enhance their engagement in the curriculum through the use of these games and activities.
