My students need sturdy, clean, and new math materials to discover and explore tough concepts like money, time, fractions and geometry!
I remember being in fourth grade and being hopelessly lost whenever I faced a math worksheet. The flat white paper made math confusing, but as soon as I got my hands on materials like fraction blocks, clocks, and money, math came alive! I want my students to master math with the tools they need!
My students have so much energy and passion for learning.
They need many outlets for their enthusiasm, and through reading, science, social studies, and math I hope to have a dynamic and exciting year which inspires them to keep pushing themselves to high school, college, and a high achieving life. My students come from a close-knit, small community where everyone knows everyone else and where the community members care deeply about the kids. This neighborhood also struggles with a history of racism, poverty, crime, and drugs, yet there is so much momentum in our community to make it a better place for the young scholars at our school. I am proud to be a part of this movement.
There are so many wonderful resources for learning math! Imagine, instead of using a paper and pencil, my students can use colorful fraction blocks to figure out tenths and thousands, a sturdy wooden clock to tell time, realistic coins and money for analyzing currency, and making their own geometric shapes. Instead of slumping over on a hot afternoon, my students will be able to get their competitive juices flowing with mathematic bingo while reviewing what we learned. Packs of flashcards will allow student s to take charge of their own learning and practice basic facts.
Math is difficult.
It can be abstract and confusing and intimidating. It was for me. But with the gift of these materials, I know math can be exciting and accessible for my young students. If I help them turn into passionate mathematicians in fourth grade, when they tackle algebra and calculus in high school and college, they'll have no problem getting the diploma they need.
