Ms. Budziszewski from Glenshaw PA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Mathematicians in the Making: Kindergarten Guided Math

My students need math related read aloud books that will be used during mini-lessons. In addition, the Hand2Mind Math Centers will provide them with daily hands-on learning opportunities for the entire school year.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My kindergarten students are full of energy and love to explore. They absolutely love hands-on activities and learning through play. I want to ensure that their love for learning continues for years to come by providing them with materials that best fit their interests and needs.

This year, my school will be merging with a neighboring school.

Our new school will be double the size of our previous school. I am incredibly lucky to be a part of this transition and so excited to impact our growing number of learners!

My Project

My students enter kindergarten with varying skills. Some of them are ready to build teen numbers, while others have difficulty identifying numbers 0-5.

This project will allow me to individualize instruction to fit the needs and interests of my kids.

I plan on using the read aloud books as part of whole group instruction and the centers kit during Guided Math.

My kindergarten students absolutely love listening to read aloud stories. Currently, however, we are lacking math related reading materials. Read aloud stories such as "I See Patterns Here" and " 12 Ways to Get 11" will help bring kindergarten math concepts to life!

My little ones learn best through hands-on exploration and play. The Hand2Mind Daily Fluency Centers Kit will provide my students with different manipulatives and games to reinforce math skills everyday!
