Help me give my students amazing math manipulatives and hands on learning activities.
I teach 17 amazing students! They are strong, kind, smart, capable, and sweet. Our school is an inner-city school with high needs. We have 100% free or reduced breakfast and lunch. The children face many challenges both inside and outside of the classroom. Often my students' families don't have the means to provide school supplies or help with any classroom "extras." I am determined to teach my students that they can overcome any obstacle. Please help me to provide my kiddos with materials that will help them receive the best education possible!
Students will be able to use the math manipulatives to learn in a more concrete way. Learning will be more hands on and tangible. The students will be able to connect the math concepts in the lessons with concrete examples. Getting these materials will allow for the achievement gaps (number sense, place value, addition, and subtraction) to be closed. Manipulatives are the foundational learning aids that my students need in math. Learners will have more success and, therefore, be more confident with their growing math skills. They will take more chances in their learning and own their work. I can't wait to see the learning!
