Preschoolers Want To Explore Geometry Concepts!

My students need magna-tiles in order to develop their pre-mathematic skills by exploring geometry concepts in an engaging way.

My Students

I teach at a Title 1 school in Los Angeles where all of the students receive free breakfast and lunch. My preschool class consists of 10 amazing students who are between 3-5 years old, with a range of disabilities. Their disabilities include Autism Spectrum Disorder, Developmental Delays, Speech-Language Impairment, Orthopedic Impairments, and Other Health Impairments.

Despite the different challenges they face, my students are excited and eager to learn!

As my student's first school experience, I strive to give my students the confidence to live their lives as normal as possible, to able to do and achieve all the things that those without disabilities can do.

My Project

Believe it or not, Preschoolers do geometry! My students need these magnetic tiles to explore geometric concepts in a fun and engaging way and bins in which to store them. By building with these magna-tiles, my students will explore symmetry, area, perimeter, and angles. As a teacher I can use these these tiles to facilitate the student's development of geometry and spatial thinking by exploring the attributes of the different shapes. When the students place these tiles and other manipulatives alike into bins, they develop not only number sense but also algebra functions (i.e., classifying and sorting by shape or color).

These magna-tiles will be used in learning centers (small-group), whole group instruction, and free-choice centers, providing countless opportunities for my students to develop their pre-math skills.

Your generous donation to our project will improve our Preschool Special Education Classroom by building students who are engaged in and love mathematics.
