Hooray! This project is fully funded
My classroom consists of a diverse population from all over the world. Many of them are English Language Learners, come from low-income families, and are growing up in inner-city neighborhoods. At school, they are provided with free breakfast and lunch and many of them are given backpacks of food every Friday to ensure they are fed over the weekend.
Despite the obstacles they face daily outside of school, they continue to show up eager to learn.
I consider my students to be the most caring, generous, understanding and helpful children that I know. They deserve the best education regardless of where they come from. When they enter my classroom, they feel safe and know they have the opportunity to find their strengths through engaging hands-on learning.
My goal is to provide the necessary resources for an exciting and rich learning experience, especially for those who lack that opportunity in their home environment. If my students are fortunate enough to obtain these types of resources, this will help them develop the skills needed to be and feel successful. This will give them exposure to new types of learning.
Having an abundance of hands-on math manipulatives and tools is never a bad thing. I realized this year that we just don't have enough engaging math materials.
My students are in need of some really good math materials to help them better understand the many skills they need to learn to be successful in class.
Activities like the sequencing number puzzles, printing numbers book and magnetic number counters are good for students that struggle to identify numbers and need a fun and engaging way to learn them. We spend a lot of time teaching addition and subtraction and having games like the pop and add, stack and build and the number lines are great ways to learn those concepts. All of these activities get children excited about learning and build independence. Please help my students get the materials they deserve and help them fall in love with math!
