We need help with our math!!! At the beginning of the year, my students set goals for themselves for their math performance. They are working hard, but their scores are not as high as we expected them to be. A big reason is that our manipulatives are very limited. Most of the math instruction takes place with a pencil and a worksheet! : ( To create an environment of success, I would love to see my students have a more real-life interaction with math so that they are able to see for themselves the value of math. In order to provide this experience, I would like to set up a variety of learning math centers that challenge my students. With the right approach and tools, math can be so much fun to learn. By funding this proposal, you will provide math manipulatives for the entire year. I will also be able to use these materials with future math classes! Please help us make our math class more exciting and purposeful by helping us set up math centers. These centers will help me to focus on my students' individual needs. With your help, my students will get a boost of excitement and work harder for their goal!
