My Students

"Everybody needs some inspiration, everybody needs some motivation, mix it up with some imagination, and use your natural gifts." -- The Kinks. Think of what the children can do with these wonderful math manipulatives!

Our school is a Title I school, which means a majority of our children come from low socioeconomic backgrounds.

Our school district, like many others, has had budget cuts in the past few years which has greatly impacted the supplies I am able to provide for my classroom. However, my students are eager and hungry to learn!

My Project

Studies show that students learn when they become responsible for their own learning. Think about the student who can use these manipulatives to grasp a math concept or to problem solve, then use them to explain the concept to a friend! These math manipulatives will provide not only the foundation to many math concepts, but allow students to explore and expand their knowledge for higher order of thinking!

These manipulatives will allow each student in the class to have their own manipulatives to learn many math concepts from addition, multiplication to even fractions!

Math is a critical need area and these manipulatives are just the thing to help get my students on the right track.
