I am a first grade teacher in Chicago's Cabrini Green neighborhood. My students live across the street from the school in the projects and do not have easy lives. I work very hard to make my classroom a warm, inviting place where learning is enjoyable and exciting. I try to allow my students to have time everyday to experiment with different materials and learn through their own explorations. This type of learning is very powerful and lasting. I have a small collection on math manipulative's for the students to use, including clocks, domino's, and pattern blocks, but this is just a start. With the help of a generous donor I would like to add matching games, unifix cubes, counters, Lego's, and more to my collection of classroom math materials. These items would make math even more exciting and exploratory for my students. I have nine months to spend with my students and I want them to leave me with a love for math. Please help me accomplish this goal!
