Mrs. W. from Paterson NJ is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Math Olympics

My students need rulers, protractors, and chart paper to help learn how to use these manipulatives in math and to create anchor charts in the classroom.

  • $558 goal

This project expired on June 5, 2014.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Our students need to learn how to use rulers and protractors appropriately and need to see more anchor charts as references in the classroom to allow for collaborative learning opportunities.

I teach K through 8th grade high-need, low-income students in a large urban public school district in New Jersey.

Our students are primarily Hispanic, and include a high number of special education students. More than 90% of our students receive free or reduced lunch. Our students often have very few school supplies from home, and some of them have never worked with anything other than a paper ruler. Using real rulers and protractors will help them be better prepared for state assessments and life beyond the classroom, unfortunately our budget does not allow for these purchases.

My Project

I am requesting rulers, protractors, and chart paper for use in the classroom. I believe that these tools will allow our students to explore the manipulative and learn about measurements and angles providing them with the necessary skills to success in school and in life.

I believe that a better understanding of mathematical concepts like measurement will help our students to succeed outside of school and could help them to gain meaningful employment later in life .

These manipulatives can help them to have a better understanding of measurements and angles and will improve teaching and learning.
