I am a New York City 5th grade teacher. I work in a low income high need school. The students in my class struggle tremendously with mathematics. A majority of the students are below grade level in math. They need extra support in mathematics before they take their math test to graduate. Some of the materials that I would like for the students are test prep materials, problems solving practice books, math games, and math manipulatives to help them solve math problems. These math supplies can make the difference in whether a student graduates or not. The manipulatives that I ordered will allow the students to work independently and cooperative with the other students in the class. I believe that if the students were able to use these math tools it would make learning math fun. My students need your support to provide them with the tools they need to be successful. Please help to make learning math a fun experience for my students.
