I am a third grade teacher in East New York. I teach in P.S. 345 located in Brooklyn. Over 90% of our children in this school receive free lunch. Many of the students in our school are far below level. My students are eager to learn and highly motivated. Unfortunately, many of my students lack basic resources at home. My primary goal is to create an inviting, hands-on learning environment where the students can feel, touch and manipulate objects as they learn. I would like to create a math center full of a variety of manipulatives that will aid the children in learning to count, sort, sequence, measure, add, subtract, and tell time. Children require more than just worksheets to learn. My students currently have math workbooks and counting chips in the math center. They deserve so much more. Most of these children have very little at home and look forward to coming to school every day eager to see what they will be doing that day. I am confident that the activities and groupwork our class could do with the proper manipulatives will allow for critical math skills building to ensure my students' success. Your support would change the dynamic of our classroom learning in math in such a dramatic way. I cannot thank you enough for your care and generosity.
