My students need math supplies they can touch and change, to make confusing concepts tangible.
14 + 5 = 19 11 - 6 = 5 What do all those symbols mean, anyways?
I teach first grade at a public school in a high-poverty area.
The students, teachers, staff and parents at my school have worked very hard to make the best of a challenging environment. We count the things we can find--coffee stirrers, old crayons, pencils, and pocket change--and we're doing okay. But I want my students to know that math is all about novelty. It's about getting a new grasp on the world, and creating new things. I want them to have a set of supplies that will support these new experiences. And, who knew it? One brave soul has offered to grow a mustache to support us!
With your help, we can give manipulable number lines, oodles of things to count, move, and group, place value materials, lap boards, magnetic manipulatives and analog clocks to every child in my classroom (and all the lucky kiddo's who follow in their footsteps). You can end the idea that math is ungraspable, unreal, and unimportant. You can make math touchable.
This project will bring hands-on math materials into the lives of my first-graders--materials that will make abstract number concepts come to life for them.
Please send us a few of your hard earned dollars (or grow a heartfelt mustache). It's for the kids.Read More
