I am a second grade teacher at an inner city school in downtown Los Angeles where my students live in a low socio-economic area. My students' parents are hardworking people who work labor jobs. Some work two jobs to support their families. They also use public transportation, and it is difficult for them to provide their children experiences and/or resources that wlld enrich their learning. I am requesting a donation that will help fund much needed resources for my students. My students love math, and I would like more resources to enrich their learning rather than just using workbooks and pencils. Math is subject that is best taught with the use of a variety of manipulatives. Unfortunately, however, these resources are costly. I would like to purchase math manipulatives such math journals, math games and other resources my school does not have the budget for. Your donation will help me create a math center with resources that will enrich my students' learning. This math center will have games, manipulatives and math resources that my students can use in the classroom and checkout to take home.
