Mrs. Grim from Hanford CA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Math is FUN!

My students need fun and exciting math puzzles, manipulates, and some self answer checking technology to excite their learning for math during their independent practice time!

My Students

Lakeside Union Elementary School District (LUESD) is a small country school from the Central Valley. Located in the small town of Hanford, my students enjoy a semi-rural life and live about 15 to 45 minutes away from the city’s stores and shops. Most of my students do not have an internet device and/or internet connection at home. I love to see their faces light up in excitement when they hear they get to use the iPad or computer to take an assessment! It’s even more exciting to see my students feel accomplished when the assessment tells them exactly how well they did and how much improvement they made since the last time they’ve taken the assessment.

My Project

I’ve been through all my manipulatives and there are tons of puzzles but they are old, worn out, torn, and parts are missing. I’d like to revamp this area in my classroom and bring back some of the fun that math can bring to education! These puzzles directly go with what students learn in kindergarten and need to practice such as sequencing numbers 1-20, matching numbers with their place value, and counting. I’ve added some manipulatives that will help children visualize when they count. And these manipulatives can help in other areas of math such a patterning, graphing, and sequencing. Additionally, I’ve added some self checking technology to the cart so that students can answer and correct themselves as they go! Which any teacher will tell you is great! All these materials will go to my math center time for independent practice of their math skills. Any donation big or small is always greatly appreciated in my class!
