My students need fun hands on items to learn addition and subtraction.
I am a first grade teaching within an urban school district. I currently have 13 boys and girls in my classroom. My first graders often deal with many different issues such as behavioral and learning issues.
I am working to have more centers around my classroom as well as teaching using stations instead of whole group learning. I am moving my teaching practices to a more cooperative learning classroom.
However, the drawback to my plans are the lack of hands on learning tools such as the Monkey Math. I had purchased one over the summer, and my kids LOVE it. This Monkey Math is a fun way for basic math facts to be reinforced with my kids.
I am also requesting a see & solve manipulative kit that will be an additional tool to supporting my students in learning to add and subtract.
By having manipulatives to reinforce our basic math facts, your donation will give my kids a very important gift for many years to come.
Thank you for taking the time to read and consider my request.
