Mrs. Chapa from Austin TX is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Math Matters!

My students need quality math activities that are fun and engaging to help them practice their math concepts. The selected activities will do such that as well as allow them to work independently.

My Students

I will have 20 adorable and very motivated first graders. They attend a Title 1 school located in South Austin. Sadly, funds are quite limited. I want to instill in my students a love of learning so they remain motivated to excel in school. Their classroom will be their home away from home. I want to provide my students the best I can in order for them to feel comfortable and confident in their learning all while having fun. I know new learning materials will excite them!

My Project

My students will be in a new classroom, but because we are a Title 1 school, I am not able to purchase desired materials with school money-funds are not available. I am trying to "beef up" the few math materials I do have so the students will have a variety of engaging materials to reinforce their learning of grade level math concepts. The "Instant Learning Centers", "Math Folder Games" and "Pattern Block Design Cards" will do just that. These age appropriate math activities will enable the students to work independently or with their math buddy. The children will think they are playing, but I will feel confident in knowing they are becoming stronger in their math skills!
