My Students

I teach in a low income, high poverty area. Our school is located in an urban neighborhood in New York City and 85% of our students are eligible for free or reduced-price lunches. The students are served breakfast and lunch. Our students rely on the school meals for their daily source of nutrition. The school services many homeless students. These students live in transient shelters. The homeless students have poor nutrition, resulting in poor health and are frequently absent. We have several special needs students in our class receiving special services.

There are 54 students, of different ethnic backgrounds and for many, this is their first school experience.

We have 23 students who do not speak English. The students speak Creole, Arabic, and Spanish. The students are African American, Haitian, Latino, and Arabic. For the majority of the students, this is their first educational experience. Many of them have not heard stories being read aloud and do not have educational toys at home. The students come to my classroom to a place where they are comfortable, socially and emotionally.

My Project

Having a selection of fun and colorful math manipulatives will engage my students with different counting experiences. My students are sometimes reluctant learners, especially in math. The games in this project will allow them to learn while having fun & using excellent motor skills.

These math manipulatives are colorful and fun; Students will be motivated & become independent while playing math & counting games.

With colorful math games, my students will have opportunities to think, engage, practice, and wonder about math concepts that will build a strong foundation for their future academic experience. It is essential to prepare these young children with positive & fun experiences. Math a necessary skill for life.
