My Students

My students are eager to learn. In an effort to instill a love of math, we are in need of activities to promote early math skills such as number recognition, counting, and basic operations. "The only way to learn mathematics is to do mathematics." -Paul Halmos

Most of my students are in a formal school setting for the first time.

I want to provide them with a rich experience to begin their school journey. My school is located in an urban society where struggles are an everyday occurrence. Learning can and should be fun and full of hands-on experiences that are engaging.

My Project

With the added resources my Prekindergarten students will be able to engage in activities that will prepare them for Kindergarten. I am asking for math resources including a set of math ten frames, a set of two-sided counters, a complete set of counting boxes, and a slide and count simple addition center. Recognizing the numbers as well as their value, counting various objects, and learning to perform basic addition and subtraction will help to build a solid foundation for future math concepts that my students will face throughout their school career as well as life experiences.

Donations to this project will enhance my classroom by providing my students with engaging activities to promote learning.

It is important that my students continue to love learning. I want them to realize that learning opens their mind and soul to a world of opportunity.
