I teach first grade on Staten Island, New York. It is a very large school of about 1,300 students. Many of the students are just learning the language. Our school day is broken up into 120 minutes of literacy and 90 minutes of math. We use math manipulatives every day. I have to teach children how to use these small math pieces. I found a small package that covers all that I need for teaching math on the overhead projector. But I have the overhead projector and that's about all. Lakeshore Learning has a package that contains overhead manipulatives such as money, rulers, pattern blocks, clocks, etc. I really need this to motivate my class as well as teach them. They get distracted easily because they are first graders and it is hard for them to sit for 90 minutes of math. If I give them a solid lesson every day with the overhead, they will be able to see, hear, and understand what to do with the pieces at their desks. Please, please, please think about this proposal because my students are struggling in math. I know that this will give them the boost that they need.
