My amazing students live in a rural area, and more than half survive below the poverty line. My class is inclusion; which means I teach students with disabilities along with their typically developing peers. We are a Title I School in an outdated building. The resources that are provided to them through DonorsChoose.org have become invaluable.
I learn as much from my students as they learn from me.
Despite the challenges my students face from learning difficulties and poverty, they continue to have good attitudes. They are eager to learn. I want to fill their space with the tools that help them to have the same opportunities as children in more prominent areas. My students deserve every advantage.
The ETA hand2mind Daily Math Fluency kit will help me provide foundational math skills every day for my students. I believe that all students can learn; however, not necessarily in the same way.
If students can't learn the way we teach, we should teach the way they learn.
Paper and pencil math is not for everyone. My students need hands on experiences in order to strengthen their number sense. They will learn more from doing than from a worksheet. Thank you for helping me bring these necessary skills to my students. It won't just help them this year. It will help them have success in the future.
