Mrs. Oliphant from Searcy AR is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Math Investigators

My students need math activity stations that would strengthen their understanding of number operations, money, time, measurement, geometry, fractions, and place value.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are challenged to receive the hands-on experiences needed to successfully master the math skills to be a successful second grader, but you can help by allowing me the opportunity to supply my students with manipulatives through your generous donation.

I am the teacher of a wonderful second grade class full of students eager to learn and get their hands-on manipulatives.

They love to "do" and "figure out" problems using "stuff". I teach at a school that serves mainly middle to low income families who struggle to provide their children with hands-on experiences outside of the classroom. It is my goal to bring those hands-on experiences to them in the classroom with your help. With the few materials I do have access to, I have seen tremendous academic improvement, understanding of concepts, and a love of learning coming from my students. I am eager and can't wait to see their excitement when I am able to provide them with more educational games and manipulatives from wonderful donors like you.

My Project

I have requested the Math Activity Stations which include materials and manipulatives to improve student understanding of number operations, money, time, and measurement, geometry, fractions, and place value. With the use of these materials, the students will be able to work in a teacher led small group or independently. Some activities they will be able to accomplish are finding the area and perimeter of a house, solve time and money riddles, sort and match fractions, build numbers, and count money.

By giving the students access to these materials, they will gain a better understanding of the concepts, because they are able to "see and feel" how they "figured out" the answer.

These activity stations allow the students actual objects they can see, touch, and manipulate and that is when they get excited about learning. Please help my students and many more students in the future by funding Math Investigators!
